Let’s talk about guns. Want to join us?

It’s time to change the conversation around guns. After a yearlong national stalemate on the issue, it’s time to reframe the conversation. Rather than focus on either gun rights or
gun control, it’s time to talk about gun safety. You’re invited to participate.

On Thursday, Sept. 27, WCNY’s Emmy® Award-winning public affairs show CONNECT NY will host a special community conversation at its TV Studios in Syracuse. The conversation will feature a variety of perspectives on guns, gun safety, gun politics, and saving lives.

A Few Points of Discussion:

  1. Why is it so hard to talk about this?
  2. What makes schools and public spaces safer?
  3. What are some universal “best practices” for people who handle guns?
  4. Who is responsible if an angry teen takes his parents’ gun to school?

We welcome your questions too.

With your help, WCNY wants to present a productive conversation around guns with both gun critics and gun rights advocates to find common ground on one of the most polarizing topics in American history.
