Professor Jacob Charles Quoted in "Courts Strike Down Gun Control Measures in Two States" -- New York Times
Professor Jacob D. Charles is quoted in the New York Times article, "Courts Strike Down Gun Control Measures in Two States." The article considers the decision of a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit that a Maryland law related to licensing requirements for handguns is unconstitutional, and the decision by a state judge in Oregon that a voter-approved ballot initiative that prohibited high-capacity magazines and required background checks and training to obtain gun permits violated the state constitution.
