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

  1. This is ridiculous. Most JDs not practicing law don't know squat to justify calling themselves a lawyer. Maybe they should try visiting the inside of a courtroom before they go around calling themselves lawyers. This kind of promotional BS just increases the volume of people with JDs that are underqualified thereby dragging all the rest of us down likewise.

  2. I think it is safe to say that those Hoosier's with the most confidence in the Indiana judicial system are those Hoosier's who have never had the displeasure of dealing with the Hoosier court system.

  3. I have an open CHINS case I failed a urine screen I have since got clean completed IOP classes now in after care passed home inspection my x sister in law has my children I still don't even have unsupervised when I have been clean for over 4 months my x sister wants to keep the lids for good n has my case working with her I just discovered n have proof that at one of my hearing dcs case worker stated in court to the judge that a screen was dirty which caused me not to have unsupervised this was at the beginning two weeks after my initial screen I thought the weed could have still been in my system was upset because they were suppose to check levels n see if it was going down since this was only a few weeks after initial instead they said dirty I recently requested all of my screens from redwood because I take prescriptions that will show up n I was having my doctor look at levels to verify that matched what I was prescripted because dcs case worker accused me of abuseing when I got my screens I found out that screen I took that dcs case worker stated in court to judge that caused me to not get granted unsupervised was actually negative what can I do about this this is a serious issue saying a parent failed a screen in court to judge when they didn't please advise

  4. I have a degree at law, recent MS in regulatory studies. Licensed in KS, admitted b4 S& 7th circuit, but not to Indiana bar due to political correctness. Blacklisted, nearly unemployable due to hostile state action. Big Idea: Headwinds can overcome, esp for those not within the contours of the bell curve, the Lego Movie happiness set forth above. That said, even without the blacklisting for holding ideas unacceptable to the Glorious State, I think the idea presented above that a law degree open many vistas other than being a galley slave to elitist lawyers is pretty much laughable. (Did the law professors of Indiana pay for this to be published?)

  5. Joe, you might want to do some reading on the fate of Hoosier whistleblowers before you get your expectations raised up.
