Society & Gun Control

Gun related homicide deaths in 2001 per 100,000: USA: 3.98 France: 0.21

Compared to most modern societies, the United States has far more firearm related deaths. With a handgun, anyone can very easily commit a murder. Do all the firearms in the U.S. make us less safe?

What are reasonable firearm laws? Background checks? Waiting periods? What would you change or add regarding our firearm laws? What are reasonable limits on self-defense?

Is hunting something we still need? Who should decide?

How to balance conflicting rights regarding society vs. the individual?
In this day and age, is the Second Amendment really relevant?
What does the Second Amendment actually mean?


Come join us for a moderated discussion on firearms, rights and society.
