Philosopher’s Roundtable: Guns In Our Society

Guns in the civil rights movementApril 11, 2017 – Segment 1

We hosted an archive from 2015. In light of the San Bernadino school shooting, have a philosopher’s roundtable on guns in our society. We look at the debate taking place now around gun control, calls for self defense in light of the shooting in Charleston, and the role of guns in the civil rights movement.

With: Firmin DeBrabander, Professor of Philosophy at the Maryland Institute College of Art and author of Do Guns Make us Free: Democracy and the Armed Society; Charlie Cobb, author ofThis Nonviolent Stuff’ll Get You Killed: How Guns Made the Civil Rights Movement Possible; and Dante Barry, Executive Director of the Million Hoodies March for Justice.
