November 27, 2023: Gun Control Histories: The Constitution and Framing Era

[30 years ago this week, Congress passed the groundbreaking gun control legislation known as the Brady Bill. So this week I’ll AmericanStudy a handful of key moments and layers to the debate over gun control and guns in American society, past and present!]

No conversation about gun control and guns in American history (or law) can fail to engage with the Constitution, the 2nd Amendment, and the Framing era. I did so at length in a Saturday Evening Post Considering History column almost exactly four years ago, so in lieu of a new post today I’ll ask you to check out that column to get a sense of the histories and contexts I’d highlight and analyze from those foundational periods. See you back here tomorrow!

Next gun control history tomorrow,


PS. What do you think? Histories or contexts you’d highlight?
