SAF, SCCC Hosting ‘Supporting Campus Concealed Carry’ Forum Aug. 1
This event will feature a Gun Free Zones debate between Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and John Lott, senior research scientist at the University of Maryland. The debate will be moderated by SCCC President Michael Guzman.
I may just have to take a day off and head up to DC for this. It doesn’t say whether it’s open to the public or not. I’ll let you know if I find out any more.
I just spoke with John Lott
. The event is open to the public. It will be in the National Press Club Ballroom on the 13th floor of 529 14th street at 1:00pm. The next step is to try to get the day off work so I can get up there. Fridays are not good days for traveling to and from DC. Traffic will be a major issue. Plus I’ll have to be naked which I really dislike…but sometimes I just have to make sacrifices for my readers.
I’ll keep you up to date.[/Update]
[Update 2] It looks like its a done deal. I’ve got the day off. The Spousal Unit is OK with it. Now all I’ve gotta do is be able to find the place and brave the traffic. Assuming it’s interesting enough to report on, I should have a report for you NLT Monday. I will at least have audio and stills. I may try to take my video camera but I’m not sure if they’ll let me film and the batteries on my 10 year old video camera are dying anyway so they don’t last very long. That may not be worth the hassle of hauling up there. Anyway, I’ll let you know how it goes.[/Update]
