Gun Control: Discussion with...(2/22)
February 22, 2013

Program Description:  

Please join the University of Louisville School of Law Student Chapter and the Kentucky Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society and the Public Interest Section of the Louisville Bar Association as we welcome Congressman John Yarmuth and Professor Neil Kinkopf, Georgia State College of Law, to discuss the politics and constitutional implications of Congress’ efforts to strengthen our nation’s gun laws.

Congressman Yarmuth, who has been in the national spotlight for his support of federal proposals to help reduce gun violence, will provide insight into legislation pending before Congress – including universal background checks and restrictions on high-capacity ammunition magazines and assault weapons. He will also discuss his work on the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.

Professor Kinkopf will discuss the constitutionality of the pending measures and whether there is a danger of running afoul of the Second Amendment.

The discussion will attempt to navigate the controversial issues shaping the debate, including:

Are the politics surrounding gun laws too divisive for legitimate reform?
• Does the proposed legislation withstand the Supreme Court's decision in D.C. v. Heller?
• Can regulations of this nature truly be effective in curbing gun violence in the United States?

Q&A to follow. Lunch will be provided. This event is open to the public at no cost to non-lawyers. There is a $50 LBA fee for lawyers, which includes 2 hours of CLE (pending). Lawyers may register through the LBA website: www.loubar.org/CalendarCLE/.
