Please join us for a special presentation by Mr. Alan Gura as he addresses recent cases and controversies involving the Second Amendment, including New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, NY, a case currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court challenging restrictions on handgun licenses issued by the City of New York that prevents licensees from transporting their weapons outside the City of New York.
