The Department of Social Sciences of Dillard University & The Political Science Program of Dillard University presented a special lecture, The Social Science Colloquium Series No. 2 on the Politics of Gun Control and its Impact on Civil Rights and Democracy in America on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013. Held in DUICEF, the standing-room only event featured several professors from the social sciences and political sciences departments. Political Science professor Dr. Nchor Okorn presided over the lecture, with Dr. Lana Chambliss acting as commentator.
Statistics on gun ownership, questions regarding current social contracts and contemplation on how gun control affects the Dillard community were all discussed at the lecture. Students were asked to think about how they would respond to gun violence and how gun control would, if at all, factor into their future career choices.
