    Well, there is a reason I am still up at 2:30am and posting on here like an idiot.

    I am working on my first draft for my Comparative Constitutional Law class. I am completing my Advanced Writing Requirement and my topic is to make a comparative analysis of the right to bear arms here in the US and Canada. Obviously I picked the topic I have to write a law review quality 25 page comment on the topic

    If anyone knows of any good sources I can use, let me know. They must be scholarly sources like books or law review artlices.

    I plan on spending a lot of time talking about the individual right conferred by the 2A as apposed to the collective right argued by so many gun control advocates.

    Also, because its a comparative piece I have to take a look at the strict gun regulations in Canada as compared to here and as a model to reform here.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't have any research materials at hand, but you might want to provide a "backdrop" on the nature of how the Canadian govt. was formed (part of the British Commonwealth) and the implications for that government not articulating individual rights (at least not since the Magna Carta....)

    ANYHOW..good luck,,I know the feeling. I'm here on my DAY OFF putting together a presentation for our board of directors so our chief operating officer and chairman can explain subprime to the board...and we're in GOOD shape!

    I picked an easy topic for my writing assignment-the practical implication of controlling internet pornography through the american legal system-Got an A
    Lord make me fast and accurate,
    May my draw be smooth and unseen
    Let my aim be straight and my shot true,

    Grant me the skill to make the shots I can,
    The restraint to avoid those I can't,
    And the wisdom to know the difference,

    So that I may be blessed with the bounty you provide

    Nice....My topic is not very difficult, as there are ample law review articles on the topic, but the time invovled in actually compiling everything into a paper that makes any sense is killing me. I have alot of my own thought on the topic, but everything needs to be supported by a footnote, and I feel like I am just repeating what others have said.

    Its almost impossible to get into the flow of writing when you have to attribute everything to a source.

    It's more time consuming, but you can simply write the paper without the applicable blue book citations, and then plug them in afterword. The Prof is not looking for regurgitated material either-they want your input on the subject but want your position based upon known reputable sources.
