He also continues to engage in litigation in the United States Supreme Court and other appellate courts, usually on a pro bono basis.

Professor Rosenthal has collaborated on a new study, “The Scope of Regulatory Authority Under

the Second Amendment,” a chapter in a recently published book, “REDUCING GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis” (Daniel W. Webster & Jon S. Vernick eds. 2013) that analyzes the efficacy of firearms regulation.

CAGV will conclude the luncheon program with its traditional “Bell Ceremony” held to remember those who have lost loved ones to gun violence. CAGV will toll the bell to honor the memories of those killed at the Goleta post office massacre in 2006. CAGV will also honor the memory of the twenty children and 6 adults killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Any member of the audience who has lost a family member or friend to gun violence is invited to say the name of their loved one and ring the Bell.
