Lifetree event to discuss guns
The topic of gun control will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
The Lifetree event, titled "Inside the Gun Debate: To Hunt? To Defend? To Assault?," features filmed interviews with Tom Mauser, whose son died at Columbine High School, and Michael Lang, a concealed weapon firearms instructor.
"In light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, gun control is once again making headlines," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "At this program, participants will have the opportunity to consider possible responses to gun violence and share their points of view."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Craig Cable at (970) 292-4697 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
