Professor Jacob Charles Moderates Panel on "Public Carry and Gun-Free Spaces After Bruen" -- Southeastern Association of Law Schools 2023 Conference
Professor Jacob D. Charles moderated a panel discussion on "Public Carry and Gun-Free Spaces After Bruen" at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) 2023 Conference. The panel addressed questions of how states can regulate gun displays after the Supreme Court decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, and what justifies creating gun-free zones. The conference took place on July 23-29.
From the SEALS 2023 Conference Schedule:
The Supreme Court's 2022 decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen transformed the Second Amendment landscape. With more guns in public, armed confrontations are likely to increase, and the doctrines governing gun displays will take place in the shadow of Bruen. States may also respond by designating additional gun-free spaces. The Court appeared to bless prohibitions in "sensitive places" supported by historical precedent, like courthouses and polling places, and even in new places analogous to those as well. Yet the opinion gave no little on how to identify such places. This panel addresses questions of both how states can regulate gun displays after Bruen and what justifies creating gun-free zones.
