Sept 29, 2019: Book discussion of The Second Amendment: A Biography

Photo for announcementThe Human Rights Book Discussion meetup group will meet on Sunday, September 29th, 3:30 pm at Panera Bread in Mission Valley Mall, 1640 Camino Del Rio N, to discuss The Second Amendment: A Biography by Michael Waldman, which we chose to take a closer look at the issues involved in Amnesty International’s new campaign to stop gun violence.

At a time of increasing gun violence in America, Waldman’s widely acclaimed book provoked a wide range of discussion. The book looks at history to provide some surprising, illuminating answers to questions surrounding the most controversial, volatile, and misunderstood provision of the Bill of Rights.
