What's Missing Here?

Take a close look at this article about (in)Justice Stephen Breyer's claims that the Founding Fathers would have endorsed restrictions on firearm ownership.  What is missing?

Yup, actual quotes and evidence to demonstrate his point, which even if true would not excuse his asinine votes on the wrong side of the Heller and McDonald decisions.  For reference, if you want real quotes and information on what the Founding Fathers believed about firearms, go to Gun Owners of America or Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.  Suffice it to say that, just like his postions in Heller and McDonald, Injustice Breyer is quote wrong here.  The real position held by Madison and others was that certain rights ought to be so obvious that we ought not need to enshrine them in law.  Fortunately, the Founders realized that there might be silly people like Breyer in the future, so the Bill of Rights was included as a condition for ratification of the Constitution.
