The Second Amendment: Law, Policy, and Regulation

2 Unit(s)

Mass shootings over the past several years have elevated the issue of gun violence and regulation to the forefront of America’s current political and legal discourse. In 2020, against the backdrop of a presidential election, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide the first major Second Amendment case in nearly a decade. This seminar, taught by a sitting superior court judge and former federal prosecutor, will conduct a deep dive into the Second Amendment, including its historical origins, Supreme Court jurisprudence, public policy discussions, and efforts at state and federal regulation.
