Assignment Instructions: 
This assignment serves as a building block for your final thesis proposal. For this literature review, you need to select a substantive theory, either something that we discussed in the lesson, or something outside of the course, and focus your literature review around that theory. Your theory selection should make sense with the research question you intend to assess within your final research proposal. Since this is a literature review focused on a particular topic (i.e. the substantive theory) you will need to discuss the current state of the literature specific to that theory (for example, deterrence theory, social identity theory, and etc). You’ll want to start with a discussion on the early conceptualizations of the theory and how it has developed overtime. your conclusion should include a discussion on where the research on that theory needs to go next. What are some questions that remain? What new ways should it be applied?
Format: Standard academic format will suffice: 1-inch borders on all four sides, double spaced, with times new roman 12-point font. As with all academic assignments (unless otherwise specified) you must include a references section and list your references.
This literature review should include a critical review of at least 9-10 scholarly/peer-reviewed articles.
Since multiple writing styles are in use within this course, on your title page, please note which style you are using within your assignment. This will help me cater my comments to the style you are using. The style you use needs to be the one that is used within your program of study.
 5 complete pages in length not including title page, or references.

A case on any United States Supreme Court case that involves an interpretation of the Constitution – this encompasses most of the cases that come before the Supreme Court. However, case heard by the Supreme Court from 2009 to the present. No case that is older than 2009. This will help ensure that is  on current, relevant case law. 
– 2 pages and contain the following information:
– Who is involved in the case?
– How has the case moved through the legal system (who filed it, in what court? What appellate court heard it? How did it get to the Supreme Court?)?
– What was the issue in the case?
– What did the Court decide? (note that the US Supreme Court is called “Court”, not “court” and not “SCOTUS”)
– What was the Court’s analysis (WHY did they decide as they did)?
– Did any Justices dissent, and if so, what did they have to say?
– What is the impact of this case?
If search on Nexis Uni or OYEZ should be able to find something
 verbatim quotations should make up no more than 10%.

Todd Patterson, a 33-year-old husband and father, is a proud gun owner who has multiple handguns, shotguns, and two automatic weapons. In this case an automatic weapon is defined as a firearm that continuously fires so long as the user presses the trigger and there is ammunition in the gun.
Todd has no criminal record. When he was 17 years old, after losing both his parents in a plane crash, he had a mental breakdown resulting in a six-month institutionalization. Todd lives in the fictitious state of Varneyland where he works as a social studies teacher and soccer coach at a local high school.
On a sunny morning in a neighboring state, a man with a history of mental illness enters an elementary school and kills 3 teachers and 10 students with an automatic assault rifle. In response to this shooting, many states across the country, including Varneyland, pass legislation requiring the registration of all automatic weapons. As part of the registration process, those seeking to register their automatic weapons are required to submit to a mental health background check.
In filling out the application to register his automatic weapon, Todd reveals his prior institutionalization, but also states that he has not had any mental health issues since he was a teenager. When the state of Varneyland conducts Todd’s mental health background check, it uncovers that Todd had a diagnosis of major depression with suicidal tendencies. Todd’s mental health records also reveal a history of self-harm.
Based on the review of Todd’s mental health records, Varneyland denies Todd’s application to register his automatic weapons and sends Todd a letter demanding that he forfeit his automatic weapons or risk criminal and civil penalties. Because Todd refuses to hand over his automatic weapons, the state police arrest him and charge him with possession of an unregistered automatic weapon (a felony crime under Varneyland law).
At his criminal trial, Todd argues that the registration requirements and his subsequent arrest are violations of his Second Amendment rights. 
Based on recent case law, do you think that Todd’s arguments possess any merit? Please be sure to specifically discuss recent case law and how it affects Todd’s case. 
Please note that the recent 2nd Amendment case law is described in the Week 4 Content section of the classroom. 
Please note that your answers have nothing to do with your personal feelings, thoughts or experiences with these issues. Your answers are to be based purely on the law, specifically precedent set by case law

[4/15/19] – ‘Juvenile Lifer’ at Center of U.S. Supreme Court Case Denied Parole Again
Louisiana inmate, Henry Montgomery, was convicted in the 1963 killing of a sheriff deputy. He was a juvenile at the time. Montgomery was convicted and sentenced to death, but the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled that he did not get a fair trial and the initial sentence was thrown out. He was subsequently retired, convicted, and sentenced to life without parole at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that mandatory sentencing of life without parole for juvenile offenders constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, but the question regarding the retroactive application of the ruling had not been in answered. In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court once again took Montgomery’s case and decided to retroactively apply the 2012 decision to inmates already in prison.  Since the ruling, Montgomery, now 72 years old, has been denied parole twice. The most recent parole decision was made on April 11, 2019.
In a discussion post answer the following questions:
Why was Henry Montgomery denied parole for a second time?
The 2016 landmark Supreme Court ruling should not be retroactively applied to inmates already in prison.
Should the Louisiana parole board should have granted Henry Montgomery parole.
What is the purpose of a parole board?

Is there another analysis that the Court could have made which would result in a different outcome?

Snyder v. Phelps, 462 US 443 (2011) involved members of the Westboro Baptist Church picketing at the funeral of Marine Lance Corporal Matthew Snyder. Please read the decision by clicking on the case name and give a summary of the facts of the case, the issue, the Court’s decision and whether or not you agree with the court’s legal reasoning. In oral argument, Justice Scalia questions the applicability of the “fighting words” doctrine enunciated in Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, 315 U. S. 568 (1942). Despite Scalia’s discussion, the doctrine is dismissed in a footnote in the majority opinion and barely mentioned in the concurring opinion. Please watch the video and answer these questions.
Please define and explain the doctrine.  Could/should it have been applied in this case?  Is there another analysis that the Court could have made which would result in a different outcome? Do you agree with the outcome of this case?  What other free speech cases has the Court decided and do you agree with them?

Should we seperate non-violent, dually diagnosed offenders from the “mainstream” criminal justice population and place them in programs like Restoration Court and The Kelley House?  Is this a good thing?
