Last December, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in a Second Amendment case for the first time in nearly a decade-New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York. Along with that case, nearly a dozen cert petitions are pending before the Court that raise complicated Second Amendment questions, like those concerning bans on assault weapons or high-capacity magazines, laws requiring individuals to show good cause to obtain a license to carry in public, and other regulations on firearms. Join us for a discussion with Professors April Dawson (NC Central Law) and Greg Wallace (Campbell Law) on NYSRPA and the Supreme Court's gun docket. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Center for Firearms Law. Contact Theresa Boyce at theresa.boyce@law.duke.edu for more information.
