Gun Laws and Policies: A Dialogue
The American Bar Association
Focus on Law Studies
Eight social science, humanities, policy, and legal scholars discuss a wide range of viewpoints on the place and regulation of guns in the United States and abroad. The conversation traverses historical perspectives, the origins and meaning of the Second Amendment, federal and state laws regulating guns, the role of public opinion and interest groups in influencing legislation, and strategies to reduce the level of gun violence in the future.
