It has been four years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in D.C. v. Heller in which the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm at least in federal enclaves. Two year later in McDonald v. Chicago, the Court held that the Second Amendment right also extends to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment. What has transpired in the lower courts since these important rulings? Who is bringing cases, and what are the bases of those claims? How have the lower courts interpreted and applied the holdings in Heller and McDonald? Our experts will provide a litigation update on gun rights.
