Professor Adam Winkler Quoted in Charlotte Observer on Federal Appeals Court Upholding Gun Restriction Ruling

October 21, 2015 – Professor Adam Winkler was quoted in the Charlotte Observer on the federal appeals court upholding the decision made in District of Columbia vs. Heller to place restrictions on firearms after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The Heller ruling “made clear there is a space in the Second Amendment for gun control laws,” UCLA constitutional law professor Adam Winkler told the Observer editorial board on Tuesday. With pro-gun-control rulings since 2008, “Courts are not showing some massive resistance against Heller. They’re taking seriously Heller’s call to balance gun rights with public safety.”
