This semester, I’m co-teaching with Joseph Blocher a seminar called Second Amendment: History, Theory, and Practice. A copy of our syllabus is available here. We just started the course yesterday and the discussion was deep, lively, and wide-ranging. I expect each week the fantastic students will bring this same level of insight and engagement to our conversations together.
I also wanted to use the opportunity of a new semester to re-up an earlier blog feature we did on Teaching Firearms Law. It includes the perspectives of scholars approaching the issue from different angles; each post explains how they teach the topic and what issues and themes they highlight. Check it out!
