Further Thoughts on Miller v. Bonta and “Assault Weapons”

By on June 16, 2021 Categories: , ,

Today I’m highlighting further thoughts on Miller v. Bonta, the California federal court decision striking down the state’s assault weapons ban, which I’ve written on several times already last week–here and here. This time, the analysis comes from my Duke Law colleague Charles J. Dunlap Jr., the former deputy judge advocate general of the United States Air Force, a professor of the practice of law at Duke and Executive Director of the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security. (Charlie was also kind enough to cross-post my blog posts on Miller on his Center’s very popular blog, Lawfire.) Given his expertise and background, Charlie’s perspective on this decision is well worth reading. Check it out below!
