Where should, and shouldn’t, guns be allowed? What restrictions should be placed on gun ownership? These are questions that have been hotly debated in Missouri and across the nation.
On Nov. 27, Be Civil Be Heard and Missouri State University will host a town hall meeting on potential Missouri gun legislation at 7 p.m. in the Plaster Student Union Theater.
State Representatives Crystal Quade, Democrat; and Jered Taylor, Republican; will discuss and answer questions about potential gun legislation in Missouri.
Dr. Elizabeth Dudash-Buskirk will facilitate the discussion.
What is Be Civil Be Heard?
Be Civil Be Heard is a community group that believes that progress cannot be made without civility; and that all citizens should have the opportunity to have voice in their governance and community.
Dudash-Buskirk is an associate professor of communication at Missouri State and the director and curator of Be Civil Be Heard.
“Our community is interested in the safety of all of its members,” said Dudash-Buskirk. “Guns and gun safety have been at the heart of public discussion. We’ll discuss these issues and gun legislation that may be considered in Missouri next year.”
