KC Dem Club on-line: Shawn Vestal, S-R Columnist–1st and 2nd Amendments

It’s time to understand when and where an armed militia can congregate. This past summer saw Sherman Ave. as a gathering spot for these groups. Is this legal under the law? Did our leaders act responsibly?  With this week’s speaker, Shawn Vestal, the Democratic Club will try to provide clarification between the activity allowed under the First and Second Amendments and when our laws are being broken

Shawn Vestal of the Spokesman-Review in a recent article provided some answers or at least an authoritative source for answers. Join us this Friday, Oct. 23rd, at Noon ONLINE. Please invite others to hear, discuss and ask questions. How people view our community is essential for our economic well being. How we see our community and what we expect of our leaders is equally important. The link to join the meeting will be sent by email on Thursday 10/22. Be there, invite a friend or neighbor as we learn together.

Shawn Vestal has been a columnist at The Spokesman-Review since 2008 and worked as an editor and reporter at the newspaper since 1999.
