The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence,
Peter and Michelle Detkin, and Navigant Consulting, Inc. are pleased to present: WHAT CAN THE GUN POLICY DEBATE LEARN FROM CIGARETTES, SEATBELTS, AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
NOVEMBER 14, 2013 6 – 8 PM
Public Policy Institute of California
Bechtel Conference Center
500 Washington Street at Sansome | San Francisco
So who are the speakers for this healthy exchange of ideas…. this “conversation about guns”? First not a single gun expert or even recently-graduated NRA Instructor will be there to talk. As for the rest:
STEPHANIE D. DAVIS, Safety Advocate, National Transportation Safety Board.
DR. STANTON GLANTZ, PhD, UCSF American Legacy Foundation Distinguished Professor of Tobacco Control.
MATT LEWIS, Vice President & Director, Communications at Next Generation.
ROBYN THOMAS, Executive Director, Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
MARK FOLLMAN, Senior Editor and Award-Winning Journalist, Mother Jones.
What we have here is a bunch of folks not really interested on “gun safety” or reducing the infamous “Gun Violence” but people who are involved in public perception and manipulation, strategic communication some call it.
Seat belts, smoking and Global warming are and remain heavily influential campaigns aimed at social & behavioral changes on regular people. Again, these are not experts on gun safety or know how to reduce crime, they are PR Hacks and Gun Control activists coming together to possibly create a way to influence people on the evils of guns. Does it sound familiar?
And remember, in politics there is no such thing as truth in advertising.
