Name: ________________________ Mr. Yasenchok AP GoPo Date: _______________ Marbury v. Madison United States v. Lopez (1995) Congress may not use the commerce clause to make possession of a gun in a school zone a federal crime. Facts: 12 th grader Alfonzo Lopez, a senior in high school, brought a concealed firearm into his San Antonio High School. He was charged under Texas law with firearm possession on school grounds. The next day, the state charges were dropped, and the feds charged him with violating the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, which forbids any individual knowingly carrying a firearm in a school zone. Issues: Is the 1990 Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 unconstitutional because it exceeds the power of Congress to Legislate under the Commerce Clause.
