NEW YORK (May 15, 2013) – “Primarily, the issue of gun violence in our communities is not a matter of gun control – it is a matter concerning the lack of widespread economic vitality. Once we successfully address the economic death that lingers in our communities, our families will become more stable, our schools will become better funded and more capable, and our neighborhoods will become stronger – all forcing the allure of gun violence and the subsequent loss of life to lessen its grip on our youth and tragic impact on our lives.”
Lenny McAllister, the “Working Man’s Conservative”, Republican strategist and pundit, and former congressional candidate (Illinois-2nd) will be a featured panelist in the Rose Dialogue Series debate, “Gun Control or Out of Control?” on June 5 in New York City. The series is hosted by the Riverdale Y in the Bronx.
McAllister will appear opposite Michael Skolnik, GlobalGrind.com administrator and political director for hip hop mogul Russell Simmons. The discussion will be led by Fox News Contributor Sally Kohn.
Tickets for this exciting night of dialogue are $18. Reservations can be made at www.RiverdaleY.org or clicking the picture above.
