Description:

Join us for "The Future of Gun Rights" presented by speaker Alan Gura of Gura & Possessky, PLLC

Mr. Gura will discuss current development in the Second Amendment regarding the cases that are currently being litigated today on a variety of topics throughout the country. He has been directly involved with litigating a number of these cases. A major issue he’ll discuss is the issue of carrying handguns outside the home for self-defense. He will include examples of the District Court in Maryland that struck down that state’s may-issue law in Woollard v. Sheridan and the Seventh Circuit Court’s hearing in Moore v. Madison, a challenge to Illinois’ band on the carrying of handguns. He will conclude with discussion of where the courts are headed on these issues and open up for some brief debate and dialogue with attendees.
