Ed Tasca presents “Gun Violence” at the Open Circle gathering at the Lake Chapala Society (LCS) on Sunday, May 23, 10:30 a.m.
Tasca, local humor writer, novelist and playwright, will deliver a presentation, both comic and serious, on the complex story of gun violence, focused mainly on Americans’ lust for possession of firearms and the psychology of their misuse, beginning with the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment. It includes a discussion of the psychopathology behind hyper-rage and gun violence, regardless of race, nation, religion or culture, and offers a view of the mental health awareness and treatment requirements that can help identify and treat those who act out violently using firearms, from pistols to military-grade weapons.
Because of the controversial nature of the subject, Tasca asks that you bring questions only, and check all guns at the door.
