The latest Supreme Court case to determine the nature of gun rights in America was District of Columbia vs. Heller (2008). In this Garfield seminar, Clark Neily, who served as co-counsel on the Heller case -- and who is currently vice president for criminal justice at the CATO Institute -- will present the reasoning behind the case, while Professor John Koritansky, chair of Hiram’s Political Science department and an expert in constitutional law, will serve as respondent to Neily’s argument, drawing in particular upon the dissenting opinion in the Heller case as offered by Justice John Paul Stevens.

The Center gratefully recognizes Trustee William J. Recker, Mark Logan ’60, Alloy Bellows President and CEO Michael Canty, and Ted Hellmuth of Boyd Watterson Asset Management, for their generous support of the Garfield Center for Public Leadership.
