The Fight Over Guns

The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

The debate over this amendment has grown increasingly hot with recent mass shootings, as advocates and opponents of stricter gun control argue the collective safety of the population versus self protection and individual rights. How do we define the right of the people and the need to be well regulated? The very words of the amendment have been used to argue either side of gun regulation.

UCLA Law professor, Adam Winkler, stands in the middle of this argument, with his book “Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America,” which has won praise from both sides of the debate.

See what Winkler has to say about the issue of gun control in “The Fight Over Guns,” as he joins Martin Lasden on this episode of Legally Speaking, presented by UC Hastings College of Law and California Lawyer.
