With one exception, I agree with Andrew Napolitano's eloquent defense of states' rights and the Second Amendment ("Shooting up the Constitution," Commentary, Thursday). That exception is his claim that the states created the federal government. He writes that there is a "serious typographical error" in the Preamble to the Constitution, because it reads, "We the People," not "We the States."

There's a partisan divide even when it comes to football, says a new Poll Position survey of 1,032 voters revealing that GOPers actually favor the rough stuff more than other respondents in multiple demographic categories. A quarter of all Americans say that professional football is "too violent," compared to 21 percent of Republicans and 31 percent of Democrats.
Executive orders only apply to those who work in the executive branch and not to the American citizenry at-large, said Judge Andrew Napolitano, a legal analyst for Fox News, during a Monday evening appearance on the cable network.
