Under Fire

Please join us on Monday, 18 February, at noon, in Classroom A, for a presentation by Clark Neily of the Institute for Justice. Mr. Neily will be speaking on, "Under Fire: The Second Amendment and What it Means Today."

Mr. Neily was co-counsel in D.C. v. Heller, which successfully challenged Washington's complete ban on handguns. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in District of Columbia v. Heller on 18 March 2008, to decide the following question:

The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted limited to the following question: Whether the following provisions, D.C. Code ยงยง 7-2502.02(a)(4), 22-4504(a), and 7-2507.02, violate the Second Amendment rights of individuals who are not affiliated with any state-regulated militia, but who wish to keep handguns and other firearms for private use in their homes?

As always, lunch will be provided.
