Getting to Know Amy Swearer, Featured Speaker at the Constitution Day Celebration

Amy Swearer, Legal Fellow at the Heritage Foundation & Constitution Day Featured Speaker.

Amy Swearer is a Legal Fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, where her areas of scholarship include Second Amendment, overcriminalization, originalism, and mental health policy*.
