The event was well attended by GoVT members and other pro-2A citizens, making up almost 90% of the participants.
Other pro-2A citizens attended via Zoom and offered their thoughts.
The presentation posed interesting questions, discussed historical events, and the original (Madison) and modern interpretations (Heller & McDonald) of the 2nd Amendment that actually support the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right.
Discussion on various points led to some interesting discussion and the observance by Professor Mott as to how civil the discourse was. This showed how gun owners are actually the rational and responsible citizens the anti-gun activists always say we are not.
While the topics covered did not go too deeply into each of the philosophical, historical and legal aspects of the 2nd, the discussion remained civil and kept the audience quite involved.
I will post a link to the video if I can find one.
