Gun rights are in the news again as the Supreme Court hears New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. Professor Amar discusses his landmark work on the Bill of Rights, and invites you to join him in an analysis of the issues in this and other “rights” cases. These cases require an appropriate methodology, and we are treated to a master class in the tools we need to perform this analysis. As we jump into the case, we will be armed with the framework we need for 2nd amendment cases, 14th amendment cases, and indeed most of the landmark cases that have come before the court over the past half-century, and will be before us, and the Court, now and in the near future.
