Upcoming Speech at Des Moines Area Community College, Ankeny Campus

Updated September 7, 2013
The annual DMACC Constitution Day celebration will highlight the Second Amendment this year. I have been invited to give a one hour presentation at the Ankeny Campus, north of Des Moines, on September 17th. This presentation is open to the public. A link to the campus map and driving directions for anyone interested are provided below.
It is my understanding that there will be two speakers on this date. The first, Prof. Steffen Schmidt, a political science professor at Iowa State University, will speak at 10:30 AM in the auditorium in Building 6.
My one hour presentation will be outside the southeast facing main entrance of Building 5 on the DMACC Ankeny Campus at 11:30 AM, September 17, 2013. The presentation will emphasize Second Amendment historical development and why its purpose naturally has such an extensive impact on the current gun control controversy.
I have rarely given public presentations on this subject. My plan at Ankeny is to provide considerable time for questions and answers. For anyone interested in an eye-opening presentation on the Second Amendment's purpose based on my most recent research into Founding Era sources, don't miss this. Please let your friends and other interested parties know about the event.
[Update: The location of Prof. Steffen Schmidt's presentation was corrected to Building 6 (from Building 7).]
