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 bestselling author Michael Shermer and iconoclastic philosopher Michael Huemer. Don’t miss this relevant and urgent debate in collaboration with USD’s Center for Ethics, Economics, and Public Policy.
