Gun Violence in America: A Moderated Forum and Panel Discussion

We hosted a public forum concerning gun violence in America and related public policy issues on November 12, 2018 at Nativity Episcopal Church in Burnsville. The forum consisted of a presentation on gun violence data, a review of current Minnesota gun laws by Burnsville Police Sergeant David Powers, and a panel discussion considering potential strategies to reduce gun violence and related 2nd Amendment issues.

The panel discussion was moderated by Mary Rice, President of LWV Bloomington. Panelists included Rev. Nancy Nord Bence, Executive Director of Protect Minnesota, Bryan Strawser, Chairman of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, Rep. Erin Maye Quade, MN House District 57A, and Rep. Steve Drazkowski, MN House District 21B. We wish to sincerely thank each of the panelists, Sgt. Powers, Mary Rice, Nativity Episcopal Church, Jamie Manzi-Moore, Eagan Television, Mike McIntee, and each of our volunteers, especially Emily Helgeson, who was the lead organizer of the event!
