FLASHBACK: Elena Kagan Moderates Gun Control & 2nd Amendment Debate at Harvard University (2003)

This article is from 2003. You can read the full story at the Harvard Crimson web page. This is all I have found so far regarding Ms. Kagan and her position on the Second Amendment.

The Second Amendment deserves a B-minus in draftmanship, according to Frankfurter Professor of Law Alan Dershowitz, who debated the constitutional issues surrounding gun ownership at Harvard Law School (HLS) last night.

In front of an audience of about 200, Dershowitz advocated heavy regulation of gun purchases, saying that the amendment would prevent guns from being banned altogether.

Joining him in debating were Dennis Henigan, director of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence’s Legal Action Program, and Eugene Volokh, a professor at UCLA School of Law. Elena Kagan, an HLS professor chosen last week to be the school’s new dean, moderated the debate.
