Professor Bogus on NPR: ‘Guns and the Supreme Court’

On March 3, 2010, National Public Radio’s “On Point” with Tom Ashbrook, featured Professor Carl Bogus in a discussion on “Guns and the Supreme Court.”

Details: The Supreme Court takes up gun rights in a big case that could blow away gun laws across the country. We’ll hear the arguments.


  • Jan Crawford, chief legal correspondent for CBS News and author of “Supreme Conflict: The Inside Story of the Struggle for the United States Supreme Court.”
  • Carl Bogus, professor of law at Roger Williams University and an expert on the Second Amendment and gun control policy. He edited “The Second Amendment in Law and History: Historians and Constitutional Scholars on the Right to Bear Arms.”
  • Nelson Lund, professor of constitutional law and the Second Amendment at George Mason University. He clerked for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, and served as associate counsel for President George H.W. Bush from 1989-1992.
