Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2008/07/25/Winning_the_DC_Gun_Ban_Case_The_Attorneys_Discuss Former Solicitor General to the U.S. Supreme Court Walter Dellinger argues that, based on the history of the term "militia" as it relates to the U.S. Constitution, the 2nd Amendment should not be read to imply an individual's right to bear arms. ----- The lead attorneys who argued the DC Gun Ban Case, District of Columbia v. Heller, discuss the strategies that won and lost the case. The panel is hosted by the Patton Boggs Foundation and includes Walter Dellinger, lead counsel for the District of Columbia in Heller and Alan Gura, lead counsel for plaintiff Heller. The panel is moderated by Lorianne Updike, Esq., co-founder of ConSource.org, the online library of primary constitutional sources containing many of the primary sources used in Heller. Walter Dellinger is the Douglas B. Maggs Professor of Law at Duke University. He returned to Duke in August, 1997, after having served as acting Solicitor General for the 1996-97 Term of the Supreme Court. After serving in early 1993 in the White House as an advisor to the President on constitutional issues, Dellinger was nominated by the President to be Assistant Attorney General and head of the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) and was confirmed by the Senate for that position in October, 1993. During his three years as Assistant Attorney General he served as the Department's principal legal advisor to the Attorney General and the President.
