Debate: McDonald v. Chicago

In anticipation of tomorrow’s decision in the gun rights case McDonald v. Chicago, SCOTUSblog is setting up an expert debate on the issue.  We have asked scholars and lawyers with expertise on either the Second Amendment or gun control laws to briefly analyze the opinion, with a focus on its implications for gun control and legal questions left open.  These commentators come from both sides of the case, if they have taken sides at all.  We expect to start getting submissions soon after the opinion is handed down, and we will post them as soon as we get them.

We are still reaching out to contributors and expect more by tomorrow.  All the McDonald posts will be available together in a special section on the lower sidebar.
