As a lawyer deeply invested in upholding the objective truth of our Constitution, William Harwood elucidates the history of the Second Amendment, tracing its original intention through the various historical legal interpretations that have led to our current relationship, legally and culturally, to guns. William Harwood has been actively involved in the efforts to reduce gun violence both in Maine and nationally. In 2000, after the Columbine High School shooting, he founded Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence to lead efforts in Maine. Since then he has served on and chaired the Governing Board of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the American Bar Association Special Committee on Gun Violence. He has also served on the governing Board of States United to Prevent Gun Violence and the U.S. Department of Justice Safe Neighborhoods Project for Maine. Finally, he has authored articles on gun regulation including: Gun Control: State versus Federal Regulation of Firearms, Maine Policy Review (Vol. 11, No. 1 Spring 2002) and a pamphlet entitled Summary of Maine Gun Laws (Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence Foundation 2003). For the past two years, he has served as Board Chair of Maine Gun Safety Coalition, formerly known as Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
