Details

School shootings such as the one in Parkland, Florida, have led to calls for much tighter restrictions on private gun ownership, including a nationwide ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Defenders of private gun ownership argue that more laws are unlikely to lead to a significant reduction in violence, and that gun ownership is a basic individual right that governments are morally forbidden to infringe.

The debate features New York Times best-selling author Michael Shermer and iconoclastic philosopher Michael Huemer.

This event is hosted by USD's Center for Ethics, Economics and Public Policy.

This event is open to the public
