The twenty-seven words of the Second Amendment have been the subject of intense debate, disagreement, and litigation. Against the backdrop of the hyper-politicized debate over gun rights and regulation, this session, presented by Duke Law professor Joseph Blocher, provides a hopeful, "constitutional" alternative. Exploring the history, meaning, and doctrine of the right to keep and bear arms, it demonstrates that the constitution provides a better starting point for the gun debate than our increasingly polarized gun politics. This event is sponsored by the Duke Law Office of Alumni and Development. For more information, please email us at Use this link to register:
