Professor Jacob Charles Quoted in "New York's Ban on Guns in Parks and Other 'Sensitive' Sites Affirmed" -- New York Times
Professor Jacob D. Charles is quoted in the New York Times article, "New York's Ban on Guns in Parks and Other 'Sensitive' Sites Affirmed." The article considers a recent ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that New York can ban the carrying of guns in schools, parks, and other places, and deny firearms to people whom local officials deem dangerous.
