Guns can be-and perhaps increasingly are-regulated outside the process we usually envision in which laws get debated and passed through the legislature. Through lawsuits asserting tort and tort-like liability (e.g. the Sandy Hook lawsuit against Remington) and through business regulation of sales practices and customer behavior (e.g. stores refusing to allow open or concealed carry), civil litigation and the private market are taking on a larger role in the regulation of firearms. Join Mary Anne Franks, Professor of Law & Dean's Distinguished Scholar at the University of Miami and Timothy D. Lytton, Associate Dean for Research & Faculty Development, Distinguished University Professor & Professor of Law at George State University School of Law for a discussion of this issues. The event is sponsored by the Center for Firearms Law. Please contact Jake Charles at jacob.charles@law.duke.edu for more information.
