Firearms and Freedom: Stories of Guns and American Life

Other - Lecture/Discussion

Tuesday, November 5, 2013
7:00 PM-9:00 PM

Dana Commons
Higgins Lounge

What happens when we start a conversation about guns and the second amendment from a place of dialogue and curiosity rather than from one of rights and public policy? Might our own stories and experiences with firearms suggest nuances excluded from the easy right and wrong of the current political debate? For example, what do you think about when you think of guns? Times of family bonding and personal accomplishment? Shootings and community danger? Urban crime or childhood play? How do your experiences affect your perspective on the proper role of firearms in American life? Facilitated by John Sarrouf of The Public Conversations Project.
