  • Volokh Conspiracy Partners with Washington Post

    Gun Watch ^ | 26 January, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    The well known and brilliant law professor, Eugene Volokh has partnered with the Washington Post to place the Volokh Conspiracy, a well argued and written blog that I have often cited, under the Washington Post website. Professor Volokh lists his reasons as one would expect: And there’s a wide middle zone of people, on this subject and on others, who are open to hearing arguments — and facts — and who might be swayed by them. (I was one myself, before I started researching gun issues seriously in the mid-1990s.) But to reach those people, you have to be in...
  • Do Civilians Armed With Guns Ever Capture, Kill, or Otherwise Stop Mass Shooters?

    The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | 14 December, 2012 | Eugene Volokh
    Backers of laws that let pretty much all law-abiding carry concealed guns in public places often argue that these laws will sometimes enable people to stop mass shootings. Opponents occasionally ask: If that’s so, what examples can one give of civilians armed with guns stopping such shootings? Sometimes, I hear people asking if even one such example can be found, or saying that they haven’t heard even one such example. Naturally, such examples will be rare, partly because mass shootings are rare, partly because many mass shootings happen in supposedly “gun-free” zones (such as schools, universities, or private property posted...
  • Why Not Regulate Guns Like Cars?

    The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | 13 December, 2012 | Eugene Volokh
    I was just on a HuffPost Live panel with, among others, Elie Mystal (Above The Law), and he suggested — as a gun control proposal — that guns should be regulated like cars. This prompts me to repost an item I posted several years ago: Cars are basically regulated as follows (I rely below on California law, but to my knowledge the rules are similar throughout the country): (1) No federal licensing or registration of car owners. (2) Any person may use a car on his own private property without any license or registration. See, e.g., California Vehicle Code §§...
  • Guns.com Discusses the 2nd Amendment with UCLA Law Professor Eugene Volokh (VIDEO)

    As part of Guns.com continued effort to bring you the most fascinating and informative gun-related content on the Internet, I decided to reach out to Professor Eugene Volokh, the Gary T. Schwartz Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law. Prof. Volokh specializes in free speech law, criminal law, tort law, religious freedom law, and church-state relations law – but he also knows more about the 2nd Amendment and firearms regulation policy than almost anyone you can think of. Plus, he is a genius. Not in a figurative sense of the term, but literally. At age 12 he worked...
  • Wisconsin Senate Does Not Need a 3/5ths Quorum to Pass Much of the Budget Bill

    The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | 3-3-11 | Jim Lindgren
    Article VII, §8 of the Wisconsin Constitution requires a three-fifths quorum only for statutes that are fiscal, that is, statutes that actually appropriate money, impose taxes, create a debt, or release a claim owed to the state. Even then, these categories have consistently been interpreted in the most limited form conceivable. The Wisconsin attorney general in 1971 gave a formal opinion to the legislature that a bill that changed collective bargaining rights substantially was not fiscal in nature and was not subject to the three-fifths super quorum provision. Because collective bargaining rights and that very statutory chapter (ch. 111) are...

    Reason ^ | July 2010 | Eugene Volokh & Ted Balaker
    Few scholars have led a life as varied as Eugene Volokh’s. Born in the Soviet Union in 1968, Volokh immigrated with his family to the United States at age 7. A prodigy, he entered the University of California at Los Angeles at 12 and graduated at 15 with a degree in math and computer science. At the same time he contributed to the family software business, which became very successful thanks in large part to Eugene’s programming skills. In his 20s, interested in new challenges, Volokh went to law school, starting on a path that would eventually lead to clerkships...

    Did anyone watch the Abrams Report at 5:00 EST on MSNBC?????? I was flipping channels and heard him say to a guest "sorry I did not leave you much time but I spent more time on the 2nd amendment which I am passionate about" I figure he was either discussing the Wal-mart suit or the DOJ document recognizing the 2nd amendment as an individual right put out this past week. I believe he is a big anti so I'm curious what he said and who was on.. Does The Abrams Report repeat later tonight. I checked the web page but...

    GUEST OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR Los Angeles Say that an I.R.S. agent leaks a politician's income tax return to a newspaper reporter, an act that is a federal felony. The newspaper may have a First Amendment right to publish the information, especially since it bears on a matter of public interest. The government, meanwhile, is entitled to punish the agent, to protect citizens' privacy and ensure a fair and efficient tax system. To punish the agent, prosecutors may need to get the leaker's name from the reporter; but if the reporter refuses to testify because of a "journalist's privilege" to protect confidential...
