Professor Winkler Comments on Gun Control Issues in Multiple Media Outlets


‚ÄčAugust 7, 2013 -- Professor Adam Winkler commented on the National Rifle Association's recent petition asking the Supreme Court to strike down the ban that restricts the sale of handguns to individuals older than 18 but younger than 21. His comments appear in a Mother Jones article.

"There's something compelling about the argument that 18- to 21- year olds who are able to bear arms in defense of the nation should be able to bear arms in defense of themselves," Winkler says. "I think, symbolically, there's a strong case to be made."
