2nd Amendment And Gun Control

Feb 7, 2013

President Obama has made gun control one of his administrations top priorities in the wake of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.  Here in New Mexico, a flurry of gun control laws have been introduced by lawmakers who say they want to reduce gun violence.  Their legislative methods are quite different, though.   

Stephen Halbrook says the climate around discussions of the Second Amendment has changed drastically since the early 1980s when UNM Press first published his book, That Every Man Be Armed: The Evolution of a Constitutional Right.
