Long time anti-gun Assemblyman Karim Camara is holding an event, “Emergency Summit …” at John Jay College of Criminal Justice on Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2013 from 9AM to 1 PM. The event is sponsored by Camara & Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. I am planning to go. It should be fun. I am driving so if anyone wants to go, send me an email.
UPDATES: I will be adding links to some of the speakers:
Professor David Kennedy; Op-Ed: Another kind of gun control; instead of doomed legislation, focus police and social services on ‘hot’ groups and places. MY SUMMARY: Why fight over politics and new gun control laws that normally don’t work. Instead, focus on the people and groups who are doing most of the shooting and where, (or hot spots,) all of the crime is going on.
Michael Skolnik; Political Director to Russell Simmons and Co-President of globalgrind.com. Just totally anti-gun.
Shanduke McPhatter; Executive Director/ Founder at Gangstas Making Astronomical Community Changes Inc. Ex-blood who decided he did not like to be in prison and wants to turn the youth around. (Skip the first 1:30)
