The Ethics of Gun Control in the United States
Recent mass shootings and protest movements like the March for Our Lives have brought the problem of gun violence to the forefront of our political consciousness. In this moderated discussion sponsored by the UIndy Ethics Center, we will hear from panelists about the Second Amendment, the core ethical trade-offs involved in protecting gun ownership vs. protecting citizens from violence, the importance of gun safety, and the role of mental health in the gun control debate. Participants will then engage in an open discussion about these and other important issues related to gun violence and gun regulation.
