Comprehensive Bibliography of the Second Amendment In Law Reviews

By David B. Kopel

Originally published in 11 Journal on Firearms and Public Policy 1 (1999).

Last Updated by Second Amendment Foundation staff on 11/26/02

This article lists articles about the Second Amendment or gun control that have been published in law reviews. David B. Kopel is an adjunct professor law at New York University School of Law, and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal on Firearms and Public Policy.

This bibliography contains only law journals. It does not include bar association journals and the like. If the law school affiliation is not clear from the journal's name, a parenthetical explains the journal's home.

Articles labeled "Comment", "Note", "Casenote" and the like are written by the student editors of the law journals. In the past, some journals did not publish the names of student authors, or published only initials.

Some of the most important of these articles can be found in Robert Cottrol, editor, Gun Control and the Constitution(N.Y.: Garland Press), which is available in a 3-volume set, and in a shorter one-volume paperback, available from the SAF bookshelf.
