BELLINGHAM - The League of Women Voters will host a panel discussion on the Second Amendment and gun safety Saturday morning, Sept. 21, in the Whatcom County Council chambers.
Three panelists - Doug Shepherd, a Bellingham attorney; Dr. Greg Stern, of the Whatcom County Health Department; and John Westerfield, manager of Yeager's Sporting Goods - will speak and field questions about gun issues at 10 a.m. in the chambers, 311 Grand Ave.
It's free and open to the public. Doors open a half-hour in advance.
In light of recent mass shootings and a reignited national debate over gun control, the topic might stir up strong emotions. But organizers hope for "a civil discussion on difficult topics."
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan group open to men and women.
