I’ve heard him speak a few times and each time I am a bit more impressed. This reply shows the political side by him, apparently, not answering the question directly. He understands the 2nd and its purpose but evades his position. It also exposes us to, what appears to be, a general understanding of the Constitution as a whole. Most politicians have not or cannot rationalize their reasons as close as he does to the context of the Constitution. I’ll have to hear more.

YouTube is rotten with Vivek videos — I’ve now listened to quite a few of them while I walk my neighborhood(!). He sounds good on all issues, including the “4th branch of govt” – the massive 430 agencies and departments of the administrative state. He’s younger than my own daughter, which makes me feel a lot older!
