Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
Professor Winkler will speak about the Second Amendment and the gun control/rights movement. His scholarly (yet dramatic) historic narrative uses the 2008 Supreme Court Case of District Columbia v. Heller to explore gun violence/gun safety, a topic most timely today, with the Trayvon Martin killing, which has the nation – and world – focused upon Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.
