EUGENE VOLOKH POINTS OUT THAT SEN. CHARLES SCHUMER IS UTTERLY INCOHERENT on the Second Amendment:

So what exactly is Schumer’s position? That “the Second Amendment confers an individual right to own guns”? That it secures “just a collective right to a well-regulated militia”? Or that the Second Amendment confers an individual right to own guns, but that it’s wrong for Attorney General Ashcroft to agree with that?

Read the whole thing, and marvel. One possible explanation: Schumer has realized that it’s basically impossible for a straightforwardly anti-gun candidate to be elected President.

UPDATE: Tom Perry says that he has decoded Schumer’s stance.
