Professor Bogus’ interests include: (1) Political Ideology. Professor Bogus is interested in modern American political ideology and how it affects public policy and law. (2) Torts and the Civil Justice System. Professor Bogus routinely teaches Torts and Products Liability. (3) Gun Control/Second Amendment. Professor Bogus proposed the thesis that James Madison wrote the Second Amendment to ensure that the federal government could not subvert the slave system by disarming the militia, on which the South relied for slave control. Professor Bogus has testified before Congress and spoken about these topics across the country. In addition to books and law reviews, his writings appear in opinion journals and newspapers, including The Nation, American Prospect, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Washington Times, and the Providence Journal.
