Upcoming legal conference on the right to arms
The American Association of Law Schools is holding its annual meeting in New Orleans in early January. In conjunction with that, Don Kates and the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund are presenting a two day seminar on the right to arms.
It’ll be held at the Radisson Hotel, in Kenner, LA,. near the New Orleans airport, on Saturday & Sunday, January 9 and 10. Each day begins at 8 AM with breakfast and 9 AM with the session.
Saturday will be a manner of roundtable on the Second Amendment, with Don Kates as coordinator.
I’m on a Sunday morning panel devoted to 14th Amendment incorporation; members will present and the rest of the morning will be a roundtable. The panel consists of:
Josh Blackman and Ilya Shapiro, authors of Opening Pandora’s Box: Privileges and Immunities, The Constitution in 2020, and Properly Extending the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to the States;
As some rather controversial matters will be raised, attendees are urged to bring body armor, and to flee before the police fire pepper gas. The 14th Amendment panel will be followed by presentations on criminology and arms control.
Reservations are necessary (the hotel wants them, and earlier is better); if anyone is interested, just email me and I’ll get your data to the right person.

UPDATE: I'd urge readers to cast a vote. It's a vote for Lowell Baeir for Conservationist of the Year. He's a hunter and shooter and life member of NRA and president of Boone & Crockett Club. He's trailing a fly fisherman by 40+ votes right now, so your aid may be critical, for a good guy. You can cast your vote here. For more info on Lowell, click here.
