Our next general body meeting is scheduled for 8pm on Wednesday, October 26th, in Hamilton 304. The topic of the meeting will be gun control. Americans own 265 million guns - more than one gun for every adult. However, only 37% percent of households own firearms; 133 million guns are owned by 3% of American adults, who possess an average of 17 guns each. The CDC estimates that there were 33,636 deaths due to "injury by firearms" in 2013. Supporters of gun control use these statistics to push for more gun control, while opponents claim that guns help deter crime and secure individual liberties. Should guns be more strictly controlled? And how can we reduce gun violence while maintaining the right to bear arms? Join us and share your thoughts over warm pizza!
Additionally, on Saturday, October 29th, Students for Liberty will be hosting regional conferences on key election issues. The New York Regional Conference will be held at New York University. Speakers at the conference include Forbes 30 Under 30's Liya Palagashvili, economist Steve Horwitz, Free the People's Matt Kibbe and Lou Perez of We the Internet TV. There will also be a film festival and a SDP Know Your Rights event.
