Conversation on Florida Gun Legislation
Since the Columbine High School massacre,  the debate over gun rights - expansion versus control as well as a proliferation of copy cat shootings - have engulfed the nation.  Increasingly, the call for an expansion of gun rights seems to be carrying the day with new bills filed in particular in the Florida Legislature annually to support this cause.

 
Join us on August 16th at 11:30 am for a stimulating conversation with two of Florida's most outspoken voices on both sides of the debate.  
 
Jeff Young "The Gun Lawyer" -  Jeff is a staunch supporter of the Constitution's Second Amendment. A gun owner and avid shooter, as well as a proud member of the NRA, he is very active in the Florida gun community, having donated time and effort to numerous gun groups and charities.  His personal law practice focuses on representing individuals seeking restoration of their civil right to possess a firearm, drafting an National Firearms Act (NFA) trust to allow them to purchase suppressors or other NFA items, or defending people who are forced to use their firearm in self-defense.

Marjorie Sanfilippo is a professor of psychology and associate dean of faculty at Eckerd College. She is the author of several empirical articles describing her research on children’s behaviors around firearms, particularly following educational interventions.  She has testified multiple times in front of the State legislature to oppose bills that would allow concealed carry on college campuses.  Her research and advocacy efforts have been showcased on national television news programs (20/20, Good Morning America) and in print media (New York Times, Newsweek).
