Cellar Door Skeptics 117: David Silverman / American Atheist Convention / Guns and Drunk Driving
Cellar Door Skeptics has a riveting episode prepared for everyone. This episode has two topics; Atheist Conventions and Gun Control.
David Silverman joins the duo this week to talk about the American Atheist Convention coming up on Easter weekend. They talk about the dynamic of the convention, their desire to present an activist convention while still holding true to their atheist roots. American Atheist also is working hard to give back to the community even during their convention.
After the interview Chris Squared talk about the argument some people are posing that since drunk driving accidents are caused by people wielding cars and no one is seeking to ban cars, then why are people seeking to ban guns. They talk through this misconception and discuss more comprehensible gun laws inside of the United States. They are not out to ban guns but to lower the amount of mass shootings and gun deaths inside of States.
