  1. Hello, I was at the gun discussion last night. I just want to say thank you for your efforts to provide a forum for civilized discussion. It was somewhat disappointing that there were members of the audience that found it difficult to restrain themselves from interrupting but I am grateful that you folks provided this opportunity and hopeful that from it, perhaps, we can learn how to better compose ourselves so as to be heard in a respectful manner.

  2. Thank you for pulling together the discussion. There were moments of good information sharing and then there were others that were not due to rude behavior, which was disappointing. I was hopeful to better understand the different perspectives to this complex and divisive issue. The audience was clearly weighted on the pro-gun perspective, which I feel stifled open discussion on the topic of gun violence. Pro-gun and gun violence intersect when it comes to restricting guns used in the anti-social and self-destructive behavior. As a society it's important for us to discuss the cultural, mental health, and access elements of the issue. I’m looking forward to your additional discussions.
