Last week, I debated former National Rifle Association President Sandra Froman on gun control. I was invited to do so by the University of North Dakota School of Law’s chapter of the Federalist Society.
This was not a debate I sought out, but it was an obligation I did not feel I could ignore. The debate was recorded. (Edit: you can now find it here.). However, I have received so many requests for details, that I thought it would be useful to post my opening statement to give people a taste of what’s to come. I do not have a transcript of the debate, so I can’t include Ms. Froman’s response, but the event was covered by the Grand Forks Herald. These comments are lengthier than a blog usually is, but we were given fifteen minutes for a statement and I wanted to make the most of them.
I look forward to hearing your comments and I look forward to posting the whole debate soon..
