President Obama has proposed, and Congress is currently debating, various gun control measures in reaction to the tragic events in Newtown. Is the President's emphasis on gun control misplaced or is guncontrol the most appropriate response to this situation? Would the measures being debated be effective? Are there any constitutional impediments to those proposals? Please join us for an enlightening debate of these and other issues related to the aftermath of Newtown between John Malcolm, Senior Legal Fellow at The Heritage Foundation and Jonathan Lowy, Director of the Legal Action Project for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
- Mr. Jonathan E. Lowy, Director, Legal Action Project, Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence
