Debate and discussion of firearms welcomes scholars, experts and members of the public

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Tech Law School will examine gun regulations during its inaugural symposium, “On the Question of Regulating Guns,” scheduled for Nov. 8.

The event will feature three panel discussions in the afternoon with leading legal scholars and experts from across the country discussing the Second Amendment, permeation of gun violence, making of guns with 3-D printers, background checks and mental health disclosures.

In the evening, the symposium will end with a community-wide debate and dialogue. Participants in the debate will be former Fort Wayne Mayor Paul Helmke, who is also the former president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Cato Institute scholar Clayton Cramer.

“The topic of gun violence and firearms regulation has become one of the vexing questions of this generation, inspiring heated debate and passion on both sides of the issue,” said symposium co-organizer and Indiana Tech Law School Associate Dean for Academic Affairs andré douglas pond cummings. “Recent tragic events in Colorado and Connecticut have centralized focus on the question of whether and how much firearms possession should be regulated in the United States.”

The symposium begins at 1 p.m. with the debate at 5:30 p.m. in the courtroom of the law school, 1600 E. Washington Blvd., Fort Wayne. Both events are free and open to the public.

  1. Here an atheist worries about the Indiana rules, when the real and demonstrated problems are (1) anti-Christian bias and (2) a refusal to follow their own rules as to the Indiana Board of Law Examiners! Such sweet, sweet irony! See, e.g. https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert and https://www.scribd.com/doc/312841269/Thomas-More-Society-Amicus-Brown-v-Ind-Bd-of-Law-Examiners

  2. Child Advocates profited over 6 million last year alone. They are bullies & do not act in children's best interests but rather their own. They placed my children full time with their unlicensed alcoholic father despite recommendations for over 5 yrs. Meanwhile my children have medical conditions left untreated living with their father and their education has suffered greatly. Get these people terminated!!!
