Federalist Society to host Second Amendment debate

RALEIGH, N.C. - A nationally-recognized attorney and two members of the North Carolina political class will participate in a Second Amendment debate at Campbell Law School next Wednesday, March 19. Alan Gura, former state senator Ellie Kinnaird and current state representative Paul Luebke will participate in the event hosted by the Campbell Law Federalist Society.

The debate will be held at the law school in room 105 beginning at noon. Members of the local community are welcome to join Campbell Law students, faculty, staff and alumni for the discussion. Paid parking is available at the City of Raleigh Municipal Parking Deck across from the law school on West Morgan Street.

“We are excited to host this strong, accomplished group for this important debate,” said Campbell Law Federalist Society President and third-year student Adthea Collins. “We anticipate a fruitful discussion, and look forward to sharing that with our neighbors in the community.”

Gura is widely regarded as one of the nation’s top Second Amendment lawyers. A partner at Gura & Possessky, his successful published cases include McDonald v. City of Chicago and District of Columbia v. Heller.

Kinnaird served nine terms as a state senator in the North Carolina General Assembly. Prior to her time in Raleigh she served as the Mayor of Carrboro from 1987 to 1996.

Rep. Luebke is currently serving his 12th term as a state representative in the North Carolina General Assembly.

Since its founding in 1976, Campbell Law School has developed lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the law as a calling to serve others. The school has been recognized by the American Bar Association (ABA) as having the nation’s top Professionalism Program and by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 3,500 alumni, including more than 2,400 who reside and work in North Carolina.
