NRA Scholars' Conference on Second Amendment Incorporation

The National Rifle Association Civil Rights Defense Fund hosted a Scholars' Conference on January 10 on incorporation of the Second Amendment via the Fourteenth Amendment Privileges or Immunities Clause.  The discussion features Ilya Shapiro (Cato), Dave Hardy (Arms & the Law Blog), Adam Winkler (UCLA), and Josh Blackman (Josh Blackman's Blog).  Thanks to Alice Beard for the tip.

McDonald v. City of Chicago, set for argument on March 2 at the Supreme Court, tests this argument.  We've posted most recently on the P or I incorporation issue here; our most recent Second Amendment posts are here and here.
