Guns, Guns, Guns: A Discussion with the Roosevelt Institute

Gun-Made-Out-Of-Guns

Are you disturbed by recent shootings throughout these United States? Do you think the issue of gun violence in this country is good conversation material? Are you hankering for a civilized discussion about the future of this country? If your answer to any of these questions is yes (or maybe), Amy Davis ’13 has the perfect opportunity for you:

Our first meeting of the semester will be this Tuesday, January 29, at 7pm on the Usdan couches to discuss gun violence.  Coming off Aurora, Sandy Hook, and an exceptionally polarized election year, there’s no better time to talk about why and how these tragedies occur, what we as a nation should do about them, and the politics behind finding a solution.

Here are a couple articles to get you up to speed:
Background Checks: Do They Work?
The 23 Executive Actions

And an interesting discussion from AlJazeera Inside Story:
Does the US Need Stricter Gun Laws

And, since comedy is the new journalism, the ever-enlightening Jon Stewart:
