Elinson/McWhirter to speak at Santa Clara University

On May 16, at 12:15 p.m., Zusha Elinson and Cameron McWhirter, coauthors of American Gun: The True Story of the AR-15, will join Subbu Vincent, director of journalism and media ethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, in a conversation about their book and unintended consequences of technology. Details on the talk here. The complicated story of the AR-15 -- today the icon at the heart of America's gun debate -- has strong California ties, from the rifle's invention in Los Angeles to the small weapons company ArmaLite that developed it to mass shootings in the state to politicians who have played a key role in the gun's history. Come and hear the talk! Book signing afterward!
