This Continuing Legal Education program will examine the 2nd Amendment, firearm regulations and recent Supreme Court opinions. We will discuss the origin and history of the 2nd Amendment and the court’s three major cases of the past 15 years: District of Columbia v. Heller, 2008; McDonald v. City of Chicago, 2010; and the recent case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen, 2022.
Justice Stephen Breyer cited Professor Paul Finkelman in the McDonald and Bruen cases. This CLE will consider the crisis of mass shootings in America in the context of these decisions, as well as the impact on the American Jewish community.
