Screen Shot 2013-04-23 at 1.51.07 PMThe Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage at the University of Oklahoma has tackled the controversial and topic subject of the Second Amendment in a free iTunes U course. The description of the course:

“This course is a citizen’s guide to the Second Amendment. Recent tragedies have put gun control in the headlines, and the lines of political argument are sharply drawn. But what about the Constitutional dimension? The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution fundamentally shapes American gun control policy. In this course, a number of experts in history, constitutional law, and political science explore the Second Amendment from various angles. The viewers will learn about its history and purpose, about the ways that the Constitution is interpreted by different Supreme Court justices, and about the recent cases that define the current landscape of Second Amendment law. The aim is to provide the background knowledge necessary for informed citizenship on this issue.”
