Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A former president of the National Rifle Association will visit two Indiana law schools Nov. 3 to discuss the Second Amendment and gun bans.

The Indiana University Maurer School of Law student chapter of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies will host a discussion with Sandy Froman about gun bans around the country. Signs will direct attendees to the room holding the discussion, said chapter president Armen Boyajian.

Froman, NRA president from 2005-2007 and now a practicing attorney in Arizona, will speak at Indiana University Maurer School of Law at noon. Her discussion, "The Chicago Gun Case: How Should our Second Amendment Civil Right to Bear Arms Apply to States and Municipalities?" will examine the Chicago and Washington, D.C., bans and how guns are being considered by some as the new "abortion" issue for the Supreme Court of the United States of America. The SCOTUS recently granted certiorari to McDonald, et al. v. City of Chicago, et al., No. 08-1521, which deals with the federalism question of how the Second Amendment should be applied to the states.

At 4:30 p.m., Froman will visit the Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis student chapter at the event, "NRA v. Chicago - Does the Second Amendment Apply to States Through the 14th Amendment?" That discussion will be in the Wynne Courtroom at the law school, 530 W. New York St.

Both events are free and open to the public. Reservations are requested for the Indianapolis event, and people may RSVP to Stephen.Simcox@gmail.com.

  1. Hmmmmm ..... How does the good doctor's spells work on tyrants and unelected bureacrats with nearly unchecked power employing in closed hearings employing ad hoc procedures? Just askin'. ... Happy independence day to any and all out there who are "free" ... Unlike me.

  3. The practitioners and judges who hail E-filing as the Saviour of the West need to contain their respective excitements. E-filing is federal court requires the practitioner to cram his motion practice into pigeonholes created by IT people. Compound motions or those seeking alternative relief are effectively barred, unless the practitioner wants to receive a tart note from some functionary admonishing about the "problem". E-filing is just another method by which courts and judges transfer their burden to practitioners, who are the really the only powerless components of the system. Of COURSE it is easier for the court to require all of its imput to conform to certain formats, but this imposition does NOT improve the quality of the practice of law and does NOT improve the ability of the practitioner to advocate for his client or to fashion pleadings that exactly conform to his client's best interests. And we should be very wary of the disingenuous pablum about the costs. The courts will find a way to stick it to the practitioner. Lake County is a VERY good example of this rapaciousness. Any one who does not believe this is invited to review the various special fees that system imposes upon practitioners- as practitioners- and upon each case ON TOP of the court costs normal in every case manually filed. Jurisprudence according to Aldous Huxley.

  4. Any attorneys who practice in federal court should be able to say the same as I can ... efiling is great. I have been doing it in fed court since it started way back. Pacer has its drawbacks, but the ability to hit an e-docket and pull up anything and everything onscreen is a huge plus for a litigator, eps the sole practitioner, who lacks a filing clerk and the paralegal support of large firms. Were I an Indiana attorney I would welcome this great step forward.

  5. Can we get full disclosure on lobbyist's payments to legislatures such as Mr Buck? AS long as there are idiots that are disrespectful of neighbors and intent on shooting fireworks every night, some kind of regulations are needed.
