Discusses the 2nd Amendment with UCLA Law Professor Eugene Volokh (VIDEO)
Gun Laws, Politics & 2nd Amendment - 06.02.2012
Story by: S.H. Blannelberry

As part of continued effort to bring you the most fascinating and informative gun-related content on the Internet, I decided to reach out to Professor Eugene Volokh, the Gary T. Schwartz Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law.

Prof. Volokh specializes in free speech law, criminal law, tort law, religious freedom law, and church-state relations law – but he also knows more about the 2nd Amendment and firearms regulation policy than almost anyone you can think of. Plus, he is a genius. Not in a figurative sense of the term, but literally. At age 12 he worked as a computer programmer, at age 15 he graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in math-computer science.

As for his law career, he is among the five most-cited, under-45 faculty members listed in the Top 25 Law Faculties in Scholarly Impact, 2005-2009 study, and among the forty most cited faculty members on that list without regard to age. On multiple occasions, his work has been cited by opinions of the Supreme Court Justices (this is just a snapshot of his bio, for the complete text, click here).

With all that said, I figured that he would be the best person to speak to on 2nd Amendment issues, particularly ones that are hotly debated.

My Comments: This is worth the read concerning his responses to a couple of key issues that most on this thread are following (which way the US and State Laws may mature on 2A issues).
