Former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta will moderate a debate on gun control featuring Sarah Brady and Asa Hutchinson on May 27.
Brady is chairwoman of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and wife of former White House Press Secretary James Brady who was shot in a 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. Hutchinson is a former United States congressman who led the National Rifle Association task force on school safety formed in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. school shooting.
The debate, which is entitled “Gun Control: The Second Amendment—Are There Limits?,” is part of Panetta’s annual lecture series hosted by his Northern California-based Panetta Institute for Public Policy. It will take place at the Monterey Conference Center.
