Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- The 2014 “Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium” was held on Saturday, October 11, 2014, at the University of Baltimore in Maryland.

Sponsored by The NRA Foundation and hosted by NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the annual symposium focused on recent developments in our nation's courts regarding the Second Amendment, as well as topics that covered the historical, academic, and practical application of firearm law.

This year’s symposium featured four distinct panels providing in-depth discussions on current national firearm-related litigation, as well as a local practitioners' panel addressing the successes and challenges of local litigation in Maryland and nearby states.  Later panels addressed important new developments specifically related to firearm preemption laws, as well as critical updates on various federal and state firearms law and policy nationwide.

Each year, NRA-ILA coordinates and hosts the “Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium” aiming to bring together NRA members, Second Amendment supporters, and the interested legal community for discussions that help foster a better understanding of firearm-related legal issues.  Attendees have the opportunity to learn, discuss, and network with top scholars and attorneys and also receive written materials from each speaker on various topics for reference.  Additionally, participating attorneys receive free Continuing Legal Education credit.

The 2014 “Firearms Law & The Second Amendment Symposium” in Baltimore proved again to be a very thought-provoking discussion of one of the most important freedoms in the Bill of Rights, and we look forward to continued success for the symposium in 2015.

Can someone tell me why the N.R.A. left Washington State firearm owners out to dry. I for one fought tooth and nail and so did hundreds of thousands of other patriots to ger out the truth about I-594. We lost to Microsoft’s billionaires Bill and Melinda Gates and Paul Allen, ex mayor of New York City billionaire Michael Bloomberg, and several other out of state billionaires . The next day after winning they bragged to KIMO 5 and the Seattle times how they lied about the ballot heading and it was not about safety , it was gun control and… Read more »

What I’ve yet to see, and by my lights is sorely lacking, is the solidification of the argument that precedent foreclosing so-called “assault weapons” bans is already settled law per U.S. v. Miller (1939). In holding that no evidence was before the Court that the sawed-off shotgun at issue “could contribute to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia”, or that it was “part of the ordinary military equipment”, the Court could not say that it was protected by the Second Amendment, hence, ergo and to wit, any firearms that DO meet those parameters ARE within the ambit of… Read more »
