COA Lecture Series – Second Amendment: Not Just a Right but a Story

Sep 20
1:30pm - 3:00pm

The Community Room

A Council of Aging event.

In the minds of many people, the Second Amendment is about the right to bear arms.  But who has that right and why?  It would be fun to look into the minds of those who drafted the Bill of Rights to see what they were thinking.  But since we cannot do this, we will have our fun in discussing the origin, history, and current use of this amendment – and whether we need to amend it!  Short readings will be provided.

Maude Chaplin received her Professor of Philosophy Emerita from Wellesley College where she taught for 44 years.  She has an undergraduate degree from Wellesley College and her MA and PhD from Brandeis University.
