Debate and discussion of firearms welcomes scholars, experts and members of the public

Indiana Tech Law School will examine gun regulations during its inaugural symposium, “On the Question of Regulating Guns,” scheduled for Nov. 8.

The event will feature three panel discussions in the afternoon with leading legal scholars and experts from across the country discussing the Second Amendment, permeation of gun violence, making of guns with 3-D printers, background checks and mental health disclosures.

In the evening, the symposium will end with a community-wide debate and dialogue. Participants in the debate will be former Fort Wayne Mayor Paul Helmke, who is also the former president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Cato Institute scholar Clayton Cramer.

“The topic of gun violence and firearms regulation has become one of the vexing questions of this generation, inspiring heated debate and passion on both sides of the issue,” said symposium co-organizer and Indiana Tech Law School Associate Dean for Academic Affairs andré douglas pond cummings. “Recent tragic events in Colorado and Connecticut have centralized focus on the question of whether and how much firearms possession should be regulated in the United States.”

The symposium begins at 1 p.m. with the debate at 5:30 p.m. in the courtroom of the law school, 1600 E. Washington Blvd., Fort Wayne. Both events are free and open to the public.

  1. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
