Lund Participates in Cato Institute Policy Forum
Professor Nelson Lund was a featured participant in a January 20 Cato Institute Policy Forum entitled, "The Future of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms." Held in Washington, D.C., the forum was co-sponsored by the Federalist Society's Civil Rights Practice Group.
In light of two recent Supreme Court decisions, narrowly tailored, that struck down an existing gun control law and prohibited state and local governments from banning handguns in the home, panelists examined whether future court decisions will further recognize a wide range of rights to keep and bear arms or prove to be more symbolic, with little effect on legislative discretion to regulate access to firearms.
Joining Lund as panelists were Alan Gura, Partner, Gura & Possessky, P.L.L.C.; Dennis Henigan, Vice President, Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence; and Alan B. Morrison, Professor, The George Washington University Law School. The event was moderated by Roger Pilon, Director of the Center for Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute.
Cato forums are broadcast live over the Internet. Broadcasts are archived 24 to 48 hours after the event has completed.
