Lund Featured at Firearms Law & the Second Amendment Symposium

The 2009 "Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium" held on September 12 at Northwestern University in Chicago featured a small group of top Second Amendment scholars and attorneys that included the law school's Nelson Lund, Patrick Henry Professor of Constitutional Law and the Second Amendment.

Panelists at the symposium used the event as an opportunity to discuss and debate current Second Amendment issues and scholarship, while also discussing key topics such as "original intent" versus "the living Constitution" and the scope and future of the Heller decision.

In addition to Lund, the event featured such Second Amendment experts as Professors Nicholas Johnson of Fordham University and Michael O'Shea of Oklahoma City University, David Kopel of the Independence Institute, and historian Clayton Cramer, among others.

The symposium was sponsored by The NRA Foundation and the Northwestern University Chapter of the Federalist Society.
