I just learned that Don Kates, the father of the modern Second Amendment revival, died Tuesday.

..................

His work has been heavily cited both by courts and by scholars — and he did this while a lawyer in private practice (with occasional time as a think-tank researcher), rather than a law professor. Though he made his greatest mark on gun law and policy, Don started his career as a lawyer doing legal aid for the poor, chiefly in the area of civil rights and police misconduct.
