The Second Amendment: Enforcing the Heller Decision

While at a conference last week I had the pleasure of attending a panel discussion entitled:  “The Second Amendment:  Enforcing the Heller Decision.”  A panel that included voices from across the political spectrum engaged in a give-and-take that well summarized developments in recent years.  The discussion was recorded and you can view it here.  I was quite pleased to have an opportunity to ask the panel to address the “as applied” challenges of the kind that Firearms Industry Consulting Group has helped to spearhead, and to find broad consensus on the panel for expanding the favorable case law through careful presentation of such cases.

My colleague, Josh Prince, has blogged much more extensively about the “as applied” challenges both with regard to non-violent, non-felony convictions as well as with regard to isolated encounters with the mental health establishment.  FICG has had success with such challenges.
