The 4 way test and the Second Amendment
At the Rotary luncheon meeting at the Lincoln Center on March 15th, the program committee has arranged an educational program to be moderated by Kip Turain.  Kip, as a retired officer of the USAF and known for listening to both sides of a conflict, will lead a discussion of the second amendment against the backdrop of the 4 way test.  Presenting the position of rights of gun owners under current federal law will be Sam Kornfeld, an attorney licensed to practice in Colorado and Wyoming, who has experience defending 2nd Amendment cases. Sam is a member of our local Kiwanis club.  Presenting the position of those favoring changes in regulation of gun ownership will be Bill Timpson, a fellow Rotarian and one of the negotiators of the Ireland – Northern Ireland conflict, which resulted in weapon surrenders to end that conflict and creating peace in both countries.  READ MORE...
