"Gun Control: A Loaded Topic" is the next program in the Civil Discourse Series, moderated panel discussions on issues that challenge deeply-held beliefs about controversial topics. The purpose is to promote and model civility in interacting with one another in a calm and inclusive manner on "hot" topics in order to increase understanding of opposing viewpoints. Moderated by John A. Delaney, University president, the panel will present diverse perspectives on gun rights and gun control. Panelists include Cord Byrd, Esquire, National Rifle Association representative; Eric Friday, Esquire, Florida Carry representative; Richard Collier, former NFL offensive lineman; and William J. Sheppard, Esquire, criminal trial lawyer. Registration is required to attend.
