The assault on Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and the mass murder of children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the village of Sandy Hook, CT has made us painfully aware of the gun violence around us and our vulnerability. Interpretation of the Second Amendment – ‘the right to bear arms’ – is critical to the search for a solution to this challenge. At our April meeting we have invited Laurie Richards to talk about the genesis and the legal aspects of the second amendment. Laurie Richards has been an attorney in California since 1975. She is an instructor and program coordinator for paralegal studies at Mt. San Jacinto Community College in Riverside.
Upcoming speakers will also focus on relevant and interesting topics for club members. May’s meeting will be devoted to the topic of immigration reform. In June we will have a visit from newly elected Congressman Scott Peters.
The April Monthly Meeting will be held one week later in the month than normal due to the California Democratic Party State Convention in Sacramento which many of our members will be attending. Please note that our next monthly meeting will be held on Saturday, April 20, with social hour beginning at 12:30 and the meeting beginning promptly at 1 pm. It will be held in the usual location at the Pavilion, at 1105 La Bonita Drive.
