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. Unfortunately, the court doesn't understand the difference between ebidta and adjusted ebidta as they clearly got the ruling wrong based on their misunderstanding

  2. A common refrain in the comments on this website comes from people who cannot locate attorneys willing put justice over retainers. At the same time the judiciary threatens to make pro bono work mandatory, seemingly noting the same concern. But what happens to attorneys who have the chumptzah to threatened the legal status quo in Indiana? Ask Gary Welch, ask Paul Ogden, ask me. Speak truth to power, suffer horrendously accordingly. No wonder Hoosier attorneys who want to keep in good graces merely chase the dollars ... the powers that be have no concerns as to those who are ever for sale to the highest bidder ... for those even willing to compromise for $$$ never allow either justice or constitutionality to cause them to stand up to injustice or unconstitutionality. And the bad apples in the Hoosier barrel, like this one, just keep rotting.

  3. I am one of Steele's victims and was taken for $6,000. I want my money back due to him doing nothing for me. I filed for divorce after a 16 year marriage and lost everything. My kids, my home, cars, money, pension. Every attorney I have talked to is not willing to help me. What can I do? I was told i can file a civil suit but you have to have all of Steelers info that I don't have. Of someone can please help me or tell me what info I need would be great.

  4. It would appear that news breaking on Drudge from the Hoosier state (link below) ties back to this Hoosier story from the beginning of the recent police disrespect period .... MCBA president Cassandra Bentley McNair issued the statement on behalf of the association Dec. 1. The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown. “The MCBA does not believe this was a just outcome to this process, and is disheartened that the system we as lawyers are intended to uphold failed the African-American community in such a way,” the association stated. “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” http://www.thestarpress.com/story/news/local/2016/07/18/hate-cops-sign-prompts-controversy/87242664/

  5. What form or who do I talk to about a d felony which I hear is classified as a 6 now? Who do I talk to. About to get my degree and I need this to go away it's been over 7 years if that helps.
