Gun Control on Trial

Monday afternoon, the Cato Institute will be hosting Brian Doherty, Senior Editor of Reason magazine. The topic will be his book, Gun Control on Trial: Inside the Supreme Court Battle Over the Second Amendment. Christopher Rhee, partner at Arnold & Porter, will be on hand for comments as well. Tim Lynch, the Director of Cato’s Project on Criminal Justice, will be moderating.

Brian’s book tells the inside story of the litigation that overturned the D.C. gun ban, D.C. v. HellerLibertarian and Second Amendment bloggers have already expressed their excitement, and his previous writings have been discussed at the law blog The Volokh Conspiracy. As a preview to the event, check out Reason TV’s videos of Brian discussing this historic legal battle, both before and after the decision came down.
