Guns USA: A Teach-In


Guns USA: A Teach-In



The purpose of this teach-in, which is sponsored by Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, U.S. Army War College and the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues on behalf of Dickinson College, is to elevate and broaden the ongoing national discussion about gun safety and gun violence in the United States for the benefit of the faculty, students, and members of the local Carlisle community. It will focus in particular upon the three following questions: 1) What is the difference, if any, between military weapons and civilian weapons? 2) What are the current limits on the right to bear arms? 3) What are the costs/benefits associated with guns?

Participants include Col. David Dworak (U.S. Army War College), Thomas Place, (Penn State University Dickinson School of Law), Harry Pohlman (Dickinson College) and William Nelligan '14 (moderator).
