McDonald on new Chicago Gun Laws

Main Debate: Gun Laws in the City

Otis McDonald, plaintiff in the recent U.S. Supreme Court case McDonald v. Chicago, will speak out against Chicago gun laws at the Main Debate of the 25th annual Bughouse Square Debates, sponsored in part by the McCormick Foundation and emceed by author and Chicago Tribune writer Rick Kogan. Mr. McDonald will debate Garrett Evans, a survivor of the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

“In keeping with the spirit of the original soapbox debates, the Bughouse Square Committee is dedicated to providing stimulating discourse on timely and, sometimes, controversial topics,” said Newberry Library President David Spadafora. “We’re pleased that Mr. McDonald has agreed to participate in this year’s event, and look forward to a lively debate on gun laws.”

The Main Debate is at 1:30 pm in Washington Square Park, immediately following the presentation of the John Peter Altgeld Freedom of Speech Award.

How is someone who cowered in fear during a massacre, and apparently is opposed to the notion of self defense generally, even remotely close to being a challenge to a man who's argument was so compelling, it went all the way to the Supreme Court, where it was ultimately used to alter laws across the entire continent?
