The recent news of mass shootings in Texas and across the country have prompted heated debates on how to handle the mounting crisis.
 
In light of this, the Lone Star College-Kingwood Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) encourages students, employees, and the community to have healthy dialogues. It will sponsor two meetings on "How Should We Prevent Mass Shootings in Our Communities." The free event is on Sept. 17 at Kingwood Christian Church from 6-8 p.m., and Oct. 1 from 3-5 p.m. in Student Conference Center on the main campus.
 
"Our goal is to reach the public to assess what policies will be accepted to deal with the spate of mass shootings," said Dr. John Theis, a political science professor and CCE faculty advisor. "Given the recent incidents in El Paso and Odessa, it is becoming more important for us to have this discussion now."
 
According to the Center for Civic Engagement, LSC-Kingwood is leading and hosting this critical discussion on the campus and in the community to show that this issue affects everyone, not just the college. CCE's purpose is to help attendees to see all complexities of this issue, help them understand where people disagree, and facilitate areas of common ground.
 
"This topic affects all of us, not just the community college or other educational institutions. Our mission is to help find real solutions to prevent mass shootings across America," Theis said. "CCE founded on the principal to revitalize our democracy and to help the public find its voice on important issues such as this one."
 
The Kingwood Christian Church address is 3910 W Lake Houston Parkway. The LSC-Kingwood Student Conference Center is located at 20000 Kingwood Drive. For more information on "How Should We Prevent Mass Shootings in Our Communities" at both locations, call 281-312-1741or email John.J.Theis@LoneStar.edu

I would like to believe one class could make a difference but until we get rid of violence in songs, movies etc. I think this behavior will continue. Go back and watch a movie from the 40s and then watch one now. Big difference.

@Donnawisdom : Well, in the "good old days", we could sing the words out loud. Now, they have to bleep all the words out. It is disgusting.
