Professor Winkler Comments in Huffington Post on Appeals Court Ruling that People Have a ‘Fundamental Right’ to Own Assault Weapons

February 5, 2016—Professor Adam Winkler was quoted in the Huffington Post on how the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit recently sided with a broad coalition of gun owners, businesses and organizations that challenged the constitutionality of a Maryland ban on assault weapons and other laws aimed at curbing gun violence.

"This case was a major victory for the NRA and gun rights advocates," said Professor Winkler. "This opinion is an important one because it subjects important gun control laws to the most strict form of judicial scrutiny."
