Monday’s Mtg: Is Any Gun Control Possible?

I believe this one was Lynn’s idea.  She thought of it after our most recent gun massacre (although I haven’t checked the news today!).  Anyway, here are a few links to the basics of gun control.

I’ll be on vacation, so Carl will be be wielding the gavel.

Possible Discussion Questions –  

  1. Is gun control still popular?  Why has support for it gone DOWN in recent years?  (See links, below)?
    .
  2. Do guns really cause crime and/or make it worse, etc?  In other words, what are the arguments conservastives make about this issue, and are we sure they are wrong?  Why do they resonate with many people?
    .
  3. Is any gun control possible at the state level, given recent Supreme Court decisions on gun rights?

  1. I just discovered your group today. What a wonderful concept. So glad to see critical thinking happening in cities all across America. Perhaps some of our topics at ProCon.org can inspire your future conversations. Keep it up!
