Welcome to the George Mason Law Review

George Mason Law Review quoted in U.S. Supreme Court opinion

Congratulations to Clayton E. Cramer, Nicholas J. Johnson, and George A. Mocsary, whose essay, “This Right Is Not Allowed By Governments That Are Afraid Of The People’: The Public Meaning of the Second Amendment When the Fourteenth Amendment Was Ratified,” was recently cited in the U.S. Supreme Court opinion McDonald v. City of Chicago, Ill. Their essay details the public meaning of “the right to keep and bear arms” in the period preceding the enactment of the Fourteenth Amendment.  McDonald has stirred a lot of public debate since it was issued on June 28, and we are excited that the outstanding scholars published in the George Mason Law Review contributed to the Court’s decision.
