Guns: Fundamentals, Rights, and Laws

with Alan Brewer


Gun control and ownership rights continue as an area of public debate, but many people feel their lack of knowledge about how guns work limits both their understanding of the issues involved and their credibility when stating their views. This course is intended to give you enough knowledge to maintain your credibility in these discussions. The first half of the course covers how guns work, the different types of guns and ammunition, and an overview of how to use guns. The second half covers the constitutional foundation of the right to keep and bear arms, and then the set of federal laws and Supreme Court decisions that set the current boundaries of civilian gun ownership. We will end with a discussion of the issues surrounding current gun violence statistics, and gun issues in general.

Instructor: Alan Brewer Alan learned to shoot when he was 9, and has kept learning about guns ever since. His knowledge of guns has allowed him to maintain credibility in all the conversations he has had regarding gun ownership and controls. He is retired, and spent most of his career as a technical support engineer and a writer of technical documentation. In both roles he learned how to logically present complex information in a way that enables people to quickly understand confusing issues. He has two degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Master of Business Administration.
