League of Women Voters to host panel discussion on gun violence

The Lawrence-Douglas County League of Women Voters will host a film screening and panel discussion on gun violence prevention on Tuesday.

As part of the event, the film “Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and NRA” will be shown. The film investigates the ties between the gun industry and the NRA.

Following the film, the League will moderate a panel discussion. Panelists include Donald Haider-Markel, University of Kansas political science professor; Jeanne Crevier, the Kansas Chapter lead of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America; and Megan Jones, of Kansans Against Campus Carry.

The screening is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St.
