How long has it been since you have had a calm, reasoned discussion with someone you don't agree with on gun rights?

Most of us have strong opinions one way or the other, and in this time of personalized information streams, sometimes it’s hard to understand why smart people can think so differently on this issue.   

The Center is offering a chance to hear smart people on both sides of the issue present what they actually think and why, both with each other and then directly with the audience.

Join us at 7pm on October 17th in Hillberry A&B in the Student Center Building. There will be a moderated dialogue between the speakers, and then moderated conversation in a coffeehouse-type atmosphere.

James Makowski, Esq., Corporate Counsel to the Michigan Gun Owners’ Association, and Linda Brundage, EdD, Executive Director of the Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, will discuss common ground as well as differences in the balance between gun ownership and public safety.

When you start with the premise that gun ownership is detrimental to public safety, I don't see how you can ever have a fair discussion of the subject.
