In the Gun Law Fights of 2023, a Need for Experts on the Weapons of 1791 https://nyti.ms/402xCjd
By Shawn Hubler NYT
Lawyers are turning to historians as they comb through Colonial-era statutes to litigate modern gun laws.
“Gun historians across the country are in demand like never before as lawyers must now comb through statutes drafted in the Colonial era and the early years of the Republic to litigate modern firearms restrictions. From experts on military gun stamping to scholars of American homicide through the ages, they have been called — many for the first time — to parse the nation’s gun culture in court.”
“Cases now explore weapons bans in early saloons, novelty air rifles on the Lewis and Clark expedition, concealed carry restrictions on bowie knives and 18th-century daggers known as “Arkansas toothpicks,” and a string-operated “trap gun” that may or may not be comparable to an AR-15.”

Pros and cons about the Clery law. I work at a college and above all students must feel safe before learning can happen. It is about time that universities, of all types private and public – 2 year or 4 year, are transparent on reporting incidences of rape and drugs or other crimes. Parents and students should be alerted to possible dangers on campus.
A lot of my students over the years have felt safe based on ignorance of the nature of crimes perpetrated on campuses. They learn but many experience date rape or other compromising situations.
These are fresh, curious young people and they are our future. Don’t they deserve better from institutions or higher learning and academia in general?
