The League of Women Voters North County San Diego (LWVNCSD) is sponsoring a four person panel discussion about “Guns in the Community: Daily Impacts and Long Term Effects.” Focusing on factual information about how guns affect our community, the goal is to educate our audience about the realities of everyday life.
District Attorney Summer Stephan will lead off by talking about what laws are in play, what new laws are being proposed, and the daily effect that illegal use has upon our community.
A local school district administrator will tell us about how schools are impacted by the fear of gun violence, emotionally, fiscally and how much time must be allocated to deal with it.
A third speaker will discuss how a law-abiding gun owner who respects the history of guns is affected by the misuse of guns by the few.
A fourth speaker from Palomar Hospital will discuss the impact of gun misuse on individuals from the perspective of public health.
Then we will ask the audience to make suggestions about what we can do as a community to deal with the wide influence of the fear of gun violence and ask questions.
We hope you will attend this discussion meeting and share your ideas for dealing with this important issue in our community.
