The Story of “The Star-Spangled Banner”
March 6, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

March 3 was National Anthem Day in the United States. Why is that, you may ask? Well, March 3, 1931 was the day that “The Star-Spangled Banner” by Francis Scott Key was officially designated the national anthem. However, the lyrics to the song had been penned more than 100 years earlier, during the War of 1812. Join us as we use HeinOnline to explore the meaning behind the anthem and how it came to be the one song that basically every American can recite in their sleep.

When Kids Shoot Guns
March 21, 2023 | HeinOnline Blog

Most people agree that guns should not be in the hands of unsupervised children. However, each year in the United States, children access firearms and accidentally—or purposefully—hurt themselves or others. The laws protecting children from accessing firearms are referred to as safe storage and Child Access Prevention (CAP) laws, but these differ from state to state. In this post, we’ll use HeinOnline to review laws that currently exist, as well as the devastating results of when these laws are not followed or enforced.

March 10, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

Today, women basketball players rack up points on the court, make impossible shots, and play thrilling games just as much as men do.

In honor of March Madness and Women’s History Month, we’re using HeinOnline, and especially our Business and Legal Aspects of Sports and Entertainment (BLASE) database, to alley-oop into the fascinating history of women’s basketball.

Secrets of the Serial Set: The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952
March 15, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

Before 1952, U.S. immigration policy was haphazard—many laws existed, but they weren’t consolidated in one place. The laws that did exist were based on highly discriminatory quotas, particularly limiting Asian-Americans. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952[1] solved the first problem, by creating a comprehensive statute of immigration policy,[2] but it was still based on quotas and didn’t do much to diversify America’s demographics—this wouldn’t happen until a revisionary law in 1965.
