New Federal and State Laws

Christopher Zealand will discuss new and pending federal and state legislation on firearm ownership, possession, and use, including a focus on issues that implicate federalism and the Second Amendment. With a newly elected administration that appears poised to expand firearm-related rights and liberties, the interplay of federal and state legislative activity will likely impact Second Amendment jurisprudence in ways not seen since the election of Barack Obama as president in 2008. Understanding the diffusion of such legislation will prove beneficial to any attorney practicing in firearm-related areas.
