WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Gain CLE and learn the latest Alabama and federal cases involving gun rights of critical interest to attorneys.
Does your practice ever involve gun rights?
It's been almost three years since voters in Alabama approved an amendment to the state constitution that affirms that the right to bear arms is a “fundamental right.” Any regulation of firearms is therefore subject to “strict scrutiny” in court.
At the federal level, while the Second Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms, the right is not unlimited and does not prohibit all regulation of either firearms or similar devices. In 1998, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which required state and local law enforcement officials to conduct background checks on persons attempting to purchase handguns, was ruled to violate the Tenth Amendment on states’ rights. The First Amendment’s right to association is cited by gun show advocates. The Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures is also cited by gun advocates.
Whether you are advising a gun owner, a gun manufacturer or seller, or a proponent of gun regulations, you need to be up to date on what the courts have said about the ”right to bear arms” and the limits that can be imposed on that right.
