Liberty Law Research Fellow Included on Gun Control Teleforum

March 20, 2013

Today, March 20, Liberty University School of Law Research Fellow Ken Klukowski will be featured on the Teleforum conference call, “Controlling Gun Control: The Seventh Circuit Steps In.” The forum is hosted by the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies and sponsored by the Civil Rights and Criminal Law & Procedure Practice Groups.

Klukowski is set to debate anti-gun activist Adam Winkler, professor at UCLA School of Law. The Federalist Society anticipates over 100 law school professors and appellate lawyers from across the country on the call. “I have absolute confidence in Ken. His knowledge of civil rights is unparalleled and will shed light into the darkness that surrounds this guaranteed right of all citizens,” said Mathew Staver, dean of Liberty University School of Law. 

According to Klukowski, “The recent Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision to strike down Illinois' statewide ban on citizens carrying a loaded weapon
in public has been widely debated and covered.
There is a thin line of division between the Governor
and Attorney General of Illinois on whether to seek a Supreme Court cert petition to have the law reinstated.
I look forward to discuss the court’s decision and the road forward for all citizens.”

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order.  It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.

The forum is held for all Federalist Society members. If interested in joining and to hear the Teleforum, click here.
