I am deeply grateful to my colleagues in the Departments of Religious Studies and Political Science for initiating an Albright community conversation about gun violence in America with deeply informed perspectives from their academic disciplines - ethics, religion, partisan politics, and constitutional law. All of their thoughts were respectful of the victims in Sandy Hook Elementary and of all the shootings that preceded and followed that tragedy and of the complex challenges that these issues pose to American society and government. Attended by many students and members of the Reading community, this panel reminded us that colleges are essential sources of information and reason for the larger society.
