This CLE will examine the 2nd Amendment, firearms regulations, and recent Supreme Court opinions. We will discuss the origin and history of the 2nd amendment, and the court's three major cases of the past 15 years: District of Columbia v. Heller, 2008; McDonald v. City of Chicago, 2010, and the recent case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen, 2022. Justice Stephen Breyer cited Professor Finkelman in the McDonald and Bruen cases. This CLE will consider the crisis of mass shootings in America in the context of these decisions, as well as the impact on the American Jewish community.
This course may switch to online only based on in person registration and COVID infection levels in Montgomery County.
