The Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute presents Ryan Busse on Firearms in America: The most important test of our democracy. No American freedom is more powerful or symbolic than our right to own firearms because no other freedom has the potential to so immediately impact the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of our fellow citizens. Hence, this immensely powerful freedom requires an equally immense responsibility, and how effective we are at balancing the two may well determine whether our democracy can survive. This presentation by Ryan Busse, a former firearms industry executive and author of Gunfight: My Battle Against the Industry that Radicalized America, is an examination of the realities of guns in America by someone who is simultaneously a proud gun owner and very concerned with the ramifications of our current national imbalance. Light refreshments will be served from 5:00-5:30 pm, with Busse's presentation running from 5:30-6:30 pm. This Theodore Sedgwick Distinguished Lecture Series event is free and open to all; registration is required.
