June 15, 2016— Professor Adam Winkler was interviewed by KNX-AM radio addressing the Orlando shooting and the public’s quick response to call for a state-based legislative solutions. Professor Winkler believes that, in practice, the scope of the law is limited in preventing these attacks.
“I don’t think there’s any gun control law we can adopt that’s going to stop a crazed madman from killing a lot of people,” said Professor Winkler. “One of the problems with the state-based firearms laws…is that people can easily go into Nevada and Arizona and buy firearms there and bring them back. They’re not supposed to be allowed to do that.”
