A VUMC panel discussion with members of the General Assembly and advocates for additional firearm regulation was held Nov. 1.

The Office of Government and Community Affairs organized this event to allow VUMC faculty and staff to hear directly from state lawmakers and advocacy leaders participating in the legislative process.
