June Meeting

  

  At our June meeting we had Judge Bennett Braun from the 12th Judicial Circuit Court of Will County as our guest speaker, Judge Braun told the 75 members in attendance about District of Columbia v. Heller, case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on June 26, 2008, held (5–4) that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to possess firearms independent of service in a state militia and to use firearms for traditionally lawful purposes, including self-defense within the home. It was the first Supreme Court case to explore the meaning of the Second Amendment since United States v. Miller (1939). Judge Braun also explain the background in both cases from picking the right plaintiff in the beginning and the strategy the attorney’s used in both cases.  Thank you again Judge Braun.
