The recent increase in gun-related tragedies have brought the gun control debate back into political discourse. We'll have an expert from the ATF with in-depth knowledge of the current laws and their effectiveness. We'll also have someone very knowledgable about the politics of gun laws: Doug Craig, vice chairman of the GA Libertarian party.
Location is tentative depending on availability and the number of rsvps we get, but we'll target somewhere on the North side of the city or just north of the perimeter.
We try to start around 7:30, but if you'd like to eat food, it helps if you arrive before 7:30 so the wait staff aren't as much in the way.
About arriving late: no worries! It's nice if we can start on time, but we have people show up an hour late all the time.
Book exchange: bring any books you want to get rid of, and pick up something new! (thanks for the idea, Erin!). There's also a bulletin board thread for book suggestions.
There's an optional $1 fee to help cover the yearly meetup fees and buy the speaker's dinner.
Our group provides a way to meet and hear from people you would never run into otherwise. We provide a place to respectfully exchange views, and welcome any viewpoint. Members come from all over Atlanta and from all different age ranges (college to retired). We have a strict "be nice" policy, and are more about learning than honing debate skills. Devil's advocates are encouraged!
