Jacobs discusses Supreme Court's gun decision


In a June 26 op-ed in The Huffington Post, James Jacobs, Chief Justice Warren E. Burger Professor of Constitutional Law and the Courts and director of the Center for Research in Crime and Justice, writes that the "gun control debate and American politics will never be the same" after the Court's 5-4 decision finding Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban unconstitutional.

Jacobs also tells The New York Sun it is unlikely that New York City's gun regulations could withstand constitutional attack in light of the Court's decision.
