However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that.
Steinberg's great cover depends for its force on the reality of what social psychologists call "cognitive maps. What is true of maps of places — that they differ according to the perspectives of the mapmakers — is certainly true of all conceptual maps. To continue the map analogy, consider in this context the Bill of Rights ; is there an agreed upon "projection" of the concept?
Is there even a canonical text of the Bill of Rights? Does it include the first eight, nine, or ten Amendments to the Constitution? One is a stereo- typical member of the American Civil Liberties Union of which I am a card-carrying member ; the other is an equally stereo- typical member of the "New Right.

One will find extraordinarily little discussion about another one of the initial Bill of Rightsthe Third Amendment: The Third Amendment, to take the easiest case, is ignored because it is in fact of no current importance what whatsoever although it did, for obvious reasons, have importance at the time of the founding.
It has never, for a single instant, been viewed by any body of modern lawyers or groups of laity as highly relevant to their legal or political concerns. For this reason, there is almost no case law on the Amendment. The Second Amendment, though, is radically different from these other pieces of constitutional text just mentioned, which all share the attribute of being basically irrelevant to any ongoing political struggles.
To grasp the difference, one might simply begin by noting that it is not at all unusual for the Second Amendment to show up in letters to the editors of newspapers and magazines.Fast story telling: non-boring or plothole?
