The twenty-seven words of the Second Amendment have been the subject of intense debate, disagreement, and litigation. Against the backdrop of the hyper-politicized debate over gun rights and regulation, this session, presented by Duke Law professor Joseph Blocher, provides a hopeful, “constitutional” alternative. Exploring the history, meaning, and doctrine of the right to keep and bear arms, it demonstrates that the constitution provides a better starting point for the gun debate than our increasingly polarized gun politics.
