Robert Levy from the Cato Institute will lead a public policy debate focusing on gun control, healthcare and election finances at 6 p.m. June 20 at the USDA: Agricultural Extension Center, at 589 Raccoon Road in Waynesville. The event is free and open to the public.

Levy has made appearances on ABC’s Nightline, CNN’s Crossfire, Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, MSNBC’s Hardball, and NBC’s Today Show. He is also the author of The Dirty Dozen: How Twelve Supreme Court Cases Radically Expanded Government and Eroded Freedom.

In his presentation, Levy will contrast constitutional perspectives — liberal versus conservative versus libertarian.

Levy was co-counsel in the District of Columbia versus Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), a case where the Supreme Court declared provisions of the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 as unconstitutional, reversing anti-gun legislation.

In 2002, Robert A. Levy, a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute, began a planned Second Amendment lawsuit that he would personally finance.
