Public invited to discussion on gun violence and mental health at church in Highlands Ranch

Posted

St. Andrew United Methodist Church is hosting a special gun panel forum at 10:30 a.m. March 18.

Panelists at the forum, titled “Protection of Law Enforcement, Churches, and the General Community From Potentially Unstable Individuals,” include District Attorney George Brauchler, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock, CEO of Mental health Colorado Andrew Romanoff and Mary Blegen, a volunteer with Colorado Ceasefire, a gun violence prevention group that promotes responsible firearm ownership.

Contemporary Issues, the church's adult Sunday School class, planned the forum in light of the New Year's Eve shooting that left a Douglas County deputy dead and a mass shooting last November at a church in Texas that killed 26 people.

Questions will be on the prevention of gun violence in public settings and early intervention of law enforcement when dealing with a mentally ill individual. The audience will also be able to ask questions and make comments.

The church is located at 9203 S University Blvd. in Highlands Ranch.
