News Cafe Book Collections - Smoking Guns, Smoking Mirrors: Where Do You Stand

Smoking Guns, Smoking Mirrors

December 2017 - January 2018

The U.S. continues to remain divided on the issue of gun control, even after Sutherland Springs, Sandy Hook, Charleston, Orlando, and Las Vegas. This café collection presents the complexity of gun control, from the history and interpretation of the second amendment, to the tragedies of killings in our schools and communities. It urges us to consider what it means to bear arms, and to take a stand on our rights and responsibilities as educators, parents and citizens.
