What counts as a "machine gun" under federal law? How do prosecutors charge and try gun crimes? Join former federal prosecutor Professor Lisa Kern Griffin and Duke Law alumna Pamela Hicks, who has held high-level positions within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), for a discussion about implementing and enforcing federal firearms laws and regulations. Jake Charles, executive director of the Duke Center for Firearms Law, will moderate the discussion about the practical aspects of gun laws. This event is co-sponsored by Center for Firearms Law, Federalist Society and American Constitution Society. The event is free and open to all; no registration required. Lunch will be provided.
