ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Are community members and their families safer with a gun in their home? That's the main topic of discussion at a debate that will take place this weekend.

Rockford community is invited to attend this Oxford-Style Debate to help determine the best ways to keep residents safe.

"An understanding of where gun safety is coming from the correct use of a weapon and how safe it is." Co-sponsors of the debate Stanley Campbell said. "These are questions that I think many people here in Rockford have on their minds."

The debate will last for approximately one hour. The moderator will ask written questions from the audience for an additional 1/2 hour. The ushers will give everyone a card and pencil for these questions. Audience members will be asked to vote on their opinion by secret ballot after the debate.
