With the topic of gun rights becoming ever more contentious in our society, it is time for a debate to clear the air and get down to the facts. With this in mind, the Oneonta Speech and Debate team will be hosting “The Bearing of Arms: A Challenge and a Defense” on April 30 at 6:45 p.m. in IRC 1. Oneonta Professors Achim Koeddermann, William Weinell and Fida Mohammad will present unique perspectives on the topic and challenge each other’s arguments. Whatever you believe, and no matter how strongly you believe it, you will learn from and enjoy this one-hour event. Audience participation will be encouraged, so bring your phone. LEAD credit is available.
