This is for his 10th grade speech class. He is looking for sources, illustrations, true stories,etc. to cite in his report. Can anybody offer any suggestions? He needs to present arguments from both sides but intends on persuading the class that the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

Sorry - I forgot to mention, he is enrolled at a private Christian school (not parochial) run by our church. There is a safety committee and several on the committee carry (with the permission of the leadership) during services.

Thanks for all of the sources. I'll have him check them out.

I am alive today because I had a gun when 4 people tried to rob me in my home.
Likewise, I am alive today because I had a gun when someone tried to carjack me.

OP, check the sticky in Women's Issues for my story and the ongoing Q&A. If your son wants to ask me any questions, shoot me a PM or post them and then shoot me a PM to make sure I answer them in time for his presentation.

Lawyer: "Just so you understand. All of your questions must be oral. Now, where were you on the night of November 2nd?"

Witness: "Oral."

Sorry. I love that one. Who's got that list of funny court transcripts??? It's always good for a laugh.
