Book Description

March 8, 2012 1454805110 978-1454805113 1
Firearms Law and the Second Amendment: Regulation, Rights and Policy is the first traditional law school casebook to cover the subject, and the only casebook that provides a comprehensive treatment since the Supreme Court affirmed the constitutional right to private firearms in 2008 and extended that right to constrain state action in 2010. From the development of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms through laws governing possession and use of private firearms, this casebook covers all aspects of firearms law, policy and regulations. It is ideally suited to law school courses on firearms law, the Second Amendment, criminal law, jurisprudence and legal history.
Key features:
  • The first traditional law school casebook to cover firearms law .
  • Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of firearms law, from its colonial origins to present-day debates.
  • Ideally suited for a dedicated law school course in firearms law and the Second Amendment.
  • Flexible organization makes this book, as well as individual chapters, well-suited for use in courses on constitutional law, criminal law, jurisprudence and legal history.
  • Supplemental materials on the website - including select student papers - will be a continuing research source tracking the most current developments in firearms law, regulation, and policy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

We strove to create a work that was different from the usual law-school textbook.  We aimed to have it appeal to all readers, for whom it would be both an interesting read and the best available reference book on firearms law and policy.  It is both the first book of its kind, and, to date, the most comprehensive one on the topic.  We hope that  it will also be a collectible/aspirational book--one that its owners will display on their bookshelves with pride, even if they do not read it through from beginning to end!  Finally, every owner is entitled to the four additional online chapters, out in 2014.
