Second Annual "Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium" To Explore Present Day Application Of Second Amendment

Sunday, September 3, 2006

The 2006 “Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium” will be held on Saturday, October 7, at George Mason University School of Law, in Arlington, Va.  This event is hosted by Law Students for the Second Amendment at GMU, along with The NRA Foundation and NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund.  Admission is free.

Capitalizing on the success of last year’s inaugural event, which brought together some of the nation’s sharpest legal minds and more than 100 attendees, this year’s event promises to be even better!  Panelists will discuss and debate:  current Second Amendment scholarship, litigation against the firearm industry, the U.N.’s intrusion into legal domestic gun ownership, and issues involving self-defense and Right-to-Carry reforms.  Featured panelists at this year’s event will include some of the country’s most renowned experts on the Second Amendment and related issues, such as:  George Mason’s own Professors Nelson Lund and Joyce Lee Malcolm; George Washington University’s Profs. Robert Cottrol and Renee Lerner; Lawrence Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation; attorney Richard Gardiner; David Kopel of the Independence Institute; Prof. Brian Patrick from the University of Toledo, and others.

This event promises to present a thought provoking discussion of what has become the most controversial freedom in the Bill of Rights.  Each Symposium registrant will receive a packet that contains the panelists’ written materials on the subject--an excellent source for future reference.  For guests who are attorneys, this year’s event may once again meet state requirements for continuing legal education. The event, including all materials, food and beverages, is being held without charge.

Online reservations will be accepted beginning late next week.  To reserve your seat in the meantime, please call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-8683.
