Few subjects inspire more debate than guns. Do gun laws work? Are restrictions on gun ownership constitutional? Should gun companies be held responsible when criminals misuse their products? The Program in Public Law welcomed Alla Lefkowitz '10, Staff Attorney at Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, to discuss how these issues are addressed in the courts. The talk addressed recent developments in Second Amendment law, and provided an introduction to civil lawsuits brought by victims of gun violence against gun manufacturers and sellers. Appearing: Joseph Blocher (Duke Law), moderator; Alla Lefkowitz (Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence), speaker. Sponsored by Program in Public Law.
