UCLA Law Review symposium on Heller and the Second Amendment

Thanks to this post at Concurring Opinion, I see that the UCLA Law Review has now published a terrific (and large) issue devoted to "The Second Amendment and the Right to Bear Arms After D.C. v. Heller."  This issue, which has more than a dozen cutting-edge pieces, looks like a must-read for not only gun gurus, but also folks interesting in modern debates over constitutional interpretation and public-safety regulations.

As regular readers know, I am very interested in examining if and when Heller and the Second Amendment will (1) impact prohibitions on gun possession for felons and misdemeanants, and (2) impact severe gun sentences.  Consequently, I will be grateful to anyone who helps me see if and where the articles in this issue speak to these matters.
