A few months ago, I was honored to receive the Chief Justice William Killen Award for Second Amendment Appellate Advocacy in connection with winning a unanimous en banc decision by the Delaware Supreme Court in Doe v. Wilmington Housing Authority. That decision, based on the Delaware Constitution’s analog to the Second Amendment, recognized a right to bear arms outside of one’s home. The National Rifle Association, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, provided indispensable support for the litigation which vindicated the constitutional rights of a resident in public housing, whose right to self defense was infringed.

The award, shown below, was presented by the Delaware State Sportsmen’s Association.
