OA47: Is This The Gun Control Case That Could Overrule DC v. Heller?

In today’s episode, we take a look at the just-decided case of Kolbe v. Hogan out of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  Is this case as big a deal as people are saying it is?

We begin, however, with a preliminary question from patron Alice Ashton, who asks about the controversial flavor-of-the-week, recently deplatformed Milo Yiannopolous.  Does knowing about a crime and not reporting it make you an accessory after the fact?  Find out!

Next, we break down Kolbe v. Hogan and explain whether this recent decision lives up to the hype (and why)!

After our main segment, we answer another patron question, this one from Derek Timp, who has some questions about the separation of church and state.

Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas Takes the Bar Exam question #12 about that criminal squirrel-feeder.  Remember that TTTBE issues a new question every Friday, followed by the answer on next Tuesday’s show.  Don’t forget to play along by following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and/or our Facebook Page and quoting the Tweet or Facebook Post that announces this episode along with your guess and reason(s)!
