If You Will Be In The Charlotte Area On Monday, Think About Attending This Event

Davidson College which is located just outside of Charlotte plans to hold a panel discussion entitled, “Gun Rights, Responsibilities, and Regulations,” on Monday at 7pm. Among the topics will the current scope and status of the Second Amendment as well as whether there should be changes to guns laws in the state and nation.

The panel has a number of local police chiefs and Davidson College professors. What is missing is anyone representing a pro-Second Amendment perspective.

Grass Roots North Carolina asks that if you can be there, please do plan to attend.

Davidson College To Hold Public Gun Forum

Panel discussion on “gun rights, responsibilities and regulations”…

GRNC has learned that Davidson College has invited the public to a panel discussion on “Gun Rights, Responsibilities, and Regulations,” on Monday evening, October 7 in the Lilly Family Gallery of Chambers Building.

The panel will address questions such as: What are the trends in the use of guns in murders and other violent crimes in the U.S.? What is the current status and scope of our Second Amendment rights? What does federal law require regarding background checks prior to gun purchases? What concerns do law-enforcement personnel have about illegally trafficked guns? Are changes to current gun laws or regulations warranted, either at the state or federal level?

The panel will include Chief Rodney Monroe of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Chief Jeanne Miller of the Davidson Police Department, Interim Acting Chief/Captain Carolyn McMackin of Davidson College Public Safety, Lance Stell, Thatcher Professor of Philosophy and Director of Medical Humanities, and Andrew O’Geen, Assistant Professor of Political Science. The event is being sponsored by the Vann Center for Ethics, and will be moderated by David Perry, Director of the Vann Center and Professor of Applied Ethics.

Lost Invitations?

Noticeably missing from the discussion panel, of course, are any solid Pro-Second Amendment individuals. Perhaps their invitations were lost at some point? Here’s where you come in: plan to attend the forum at Davidson College on Monday evening so that all voices can be heard. Unless we are willing to participate in these types of forums, our voices may be swept by the wayside so that only one side of the issue is heard. Although we can’t say for sure if that is the intention here, we can make sure that our side is represented in the audience, at least.

Important note

Those planning to attend the event should note that guns are not allowed on the Davidson College campus. Davidson College is a private educational facility and does have a “no weapons/ firearms” policy. Please do not bring firearms with you on Monday evening.
