RALEIGH — Campbell Law School Professor Greg Wallace recently co-authored several chapters in the casebook Firearms Law and the Second Amendment: Regulation, Rights, and Policy, which is used in several law school classes on firearms law.

“It also functions as a treatise for academics, practitioners and anyone else interested in this subject,” Wallace wrote in a blog post hosted by the Duke Center for Firearms Law.

Five online chapters spanning 636 pages supplement the casebook’s 11 printed chapters. These online chapters recently were updated and are now available at no charge on the casebook’s website. They are co-authored by Wallace, Nicholas J. Johnson, David B. Kopel and George A. Mocsary.

For the Duke Center’s Scholarship Highlight interview series, Jake Charles recently spoke about the updated online chapters with George A. Mocsary, professor at Wyoming College of Law and one of the casebook’s co-authors, specifically focusing on Chapter 14 on Comparative Law.

In his blog post, Wallace provided an overview of the remaining online chapters with the following titles:

  • Chapter 12 – Firearms Policy and Status: Race, Gender, Age, Disability, and Sexual Orientation
  • Chapter 13 – International Law
  • Chapter 14 – Comparative Law
  • Chapter 15 – In-Depth Explanation of Firearms and Ammunition
  • Chapter 16 – Antecedents of the Second Amendment.

“Firearms law is both fascinating and extensive,” he wrote. “We invite you to explore the wide range of materials in these updated online chapters.”

A third edition of the casebook is scheduled to be published in 2021.
