ABA Second Amendment Roundtable

Attorney Bobbie Ross, chair of the American Bar Association Second Amendment Civil Rights Litigation Subcommittee, has announced that her subcommittee is having a roundtable discussion on Second Amendment issues this Wednesday. It will be conducted by conference call and you don’t have to be either a lawyer or a member of the American Bar Association to participate.




In the wake of recent mass shootings, many have called for stricter regulations on firearms. What are the possibilities and legal limits of gun control in America? Where can or should lines be drawn, given the Second Amendment’s language regarding the right to bear arms? A panel of experts will shed light on issues of public safety, individual rights, mental health, and other issues raised by gun violence. Join us on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. eastern time. Learn the facts, and form your own conclusions.

The roundtable will be Q&A style. You can submit questions for the panelists via email to atty@bobbierossesq.com.

Panelists: Dave Kopel (Research Director of the Independence Institute; Associate Policy Analyst with the Cato Institute; and adjunct professor at Universtiy of Denver, Sturm College of Law), Nicholas Johnson (Fordham University, School of Law professor), Adam Winkler (UCLA School of Law professor), Ladd Everitt (Director of Communications of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence).

This has the potential to be very interesting. Though I have to say that the composition of the panel reminds me of the Sesame Street song, “One of these Things…”

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others,
Then you’re absolutely…right!
