Event Title:  DukeNY - Guns and America: Stopping the Violence without Fighting Each Other
Date:   Mar 13, 2014
Time:   6:30PM - 9:00PM ET
Location:   Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP | 425 Lexington Avenue | New York, NY 10017

Guns have been a part of American culture since the inception of our country. And yet, more than a year after the lives of 20 children and 6 adults in our tri-state community were tragically cut short by a mass shooting at their quiet elementary school in Newtown, CT, we continue to hear almost daily about local and national tragedies involving guns: shootings at schools, mass murders at malls and movie theaters, and accidents in homes.

The heated debate about how to stop the violence grows louder, with many of us choosing sides of an increasingly polarized debate—while concrete solutions to the problem have yet to be identified and implemented.

DukeNY welcomes an esteemed panel of guests with different voices and points of view, as they appear together to discuss proposed thoughts and solutions in the areas of education, training, enforcement, regulation, innovations, and more. Most importantly, they discuss how we can help bring an end to the senseless loss of life—a goal we all share—without endlessly fighting each other instead.
