Professor Winkler Quoted in CT Post on How Gun-rights Groups Appeal Ban to SCOTUS

February 12, 2016—Professor Adam Winkler was quoted in CT Post on how the leading opponents of Connecticut’s sweeping, post-Newtown gun laws appealed the state’s assault-weapons ban to the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that semi-automatic weapons like the AR-15 are widely popular and well-suited to home defense.

“The Supreme Court is not likely to hear this case,’’ said Professor Winkler. “This area of law has many open questions, and lower courts look to the Supreme Court for guidance. In the Second Amendment area, that guidance has been absent.’’
