Aug 24 - Edgartown - Julian Cyr Brunch

September 5 - Hyannis - Grandmothers Against Gun Violence
10:30 AM, Cape Cod Synagogue, 145 Winter St. , Hyannis, MA.

Their special guest speaker is David M. Powers: How did guns fit into the culture which the earliest European settlers brought with them to New England, when Massachusetts was the “wild west” frontier on the continent of North America? Is there anything in 17th century firearms regulations which can inform the present controversies about guns, violence, and freedom? In his “Puritans and Gun Control,” sspeech, Mr.Powers will explore the specific rules Massachusetts Puritans developed about guns in the early 1600s. His analysis offers some surprises, especially for those who may have assumed it was “every man for himself” in the old days. Their general meeting will begin at 10:30am. Mr. Powers is scheduled to speak at 11 am.  We will have a brief Q & A with him following his speech and then a light lunch will be served.
