City Club Panel Discusses Gun Violence

EUGENE, Ore. — On Friday, three panelists offered insight on the gun control debate at a Eugene City Club meeting.

Many topics were covered, from the pros and cons of gun control legislation to Lane County’s statistics on gun violence. One of the speakers, NRA member Peter Loewy, argued that gun control laws haven’t been effective. “It boils down to the fact that the things we’re doing aren’t working as far as reducing the number of gun-violence incidents in the country,” he said.

Another panelist, Baldr Odinson of Ceasefire Oregon, argued that there are more things to consider than just the Second Amendment. “We’re talking about a serious public health crisis,” said Odinson. “It’s not just a question about rights.”

The panelists all agreed that meetings like these help keep the community well-informed and give people the opportunity to ask questions.

    Baldr Odinson is just another Lib Tard that believe’s that gun control is the answer. You are one mislead puppy. This last killing in CA was a psycho, the bomb build here in Oregon was a psycho. Your problem is psycho’s, Criminals and Druggies. Put them away and keep them behind bars. Is that so hard for you to understand.
