Overview

For many years, some groups have claimed that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution stands as an obstacle to most gun control laws. Lawrence E. Rosenthal and Adam Winkler debunk this myth with careful legal analysis of recent court decisions, including District of Columbia v. Heller. This selection from Reducing Gun Violence in America tackles the most fundamental question at hand: How do we reduce gun violence while upholding our constitutional right to bear arms?

Additional material includes an introduction by Michael R. Bloomberg and Consensus Recommendations for Reforms to Federal Gun Policies from the Johns Hopkins University.

Whether excerpted from forthcoming or classic backlist titles or developed with newly commissioned content, Hopkins Digital Shorts deliver high-quality scholarship and compelling narratives in eBook format.
