Update: Video HERE

Back in 1995, the University of Tennessee Law Review published a Second Amendment Symposium (still available HERE), reported by MJM to be

the most-purchased volume of the Tennessee Law Review, ever-

That edition of the Law Review included articles by UT Law Professor (and Instapundit) Glenn H. Reynolds, and Stephen P. Halbrook. Another contributor, Colonel Charles J. Dunlap Jr., USAF, made light of the "Insurrectionary" Theory of the Second Amendment, a viewpoint that this column believes recent history in the sandbox has disproven.

Now, gun rights advocates have the opportunity to attend a live symposium at the UT College of Law (LOCATION), on Saturday, March 1, at 9 a.m.

From the Instapundit blog:

Symposium: New Frontiers in the Second Amendment

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s recognition of personal Second Amendment rights in Heller and McDonald, as well as the recent national debates over gun control, questions have arisen as to exactly what rights the Second Amendment protects and what rights it ought to protect.

The Tennessee Law Review Symposium will include papers and presentations from varied viewpoints discussing the following topics:

· The nature and extent of possible Second Amendment protection of the right to carry firearms.
· The categories and types of weapons that may carry Second Amendment protection.

And much more . . .

American firearms jurisprudence has changed tremendously since the first symposium. With Heller and McDonald in the rear view mirror, attend this event, and learn of possibilities for the future.
