Constitutional Jurisprudence

Not since District of Columbia v. Heller has there been a more important Second Amendment case than one currently coming out of the state of New York. With us today is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine, to discuss the upcoming Supreme Court case and its implications. The question centers around the 'bear arms' portion of the Second Amendment and whether that extends outside of the home. He looks at the history of 2A and the precedents that could be looked at in this case. He and John also examines gun control measures and the battle between states and the federal government as far as jurisdiction is concerned.
