Lots of new reading for Second Amendment fans

I have noticed that a wave of Heller and Second Amendment scholarship is starting to crash on the beaches of SSRN.  Specifically, these four new pieces have all showed up in just the last few weeks:

Heller and Nonlethal Weapons by Craig S. Lerner & Nelson Lund

The District of Columbia v. Heller and Antonin Scalia's Perverse Sense of Originalism by William G. Merkel

Scope of Second Amendment Right - Post-Heller Standard of Review by Ivan E. Bodensteiner

Heller High Water? The Future of Originalism by Jamal Greene

This new set of pieces has me thinking that Heller is a case that has far more impact on scholarly agendas than on actual gun regulations.  The pieces also have me wondering if anyone is actively working on a Second Amendment casebook or reader, which could make life a lot easier as I gear up to teach a Second Amendment seminar in the fall.
