Forty-four states permit open carry of long guns while 31 allow open carry of handguns. Protesters have been carrying weapons for a multitude of professed reasons, from their membership in a militia or pro-gun rights group to self-defense concerns or a desire to defend – or intimidate – others in often highly charged or confrontational environments. This webinar will explore the evolving armed protest environment for the benefit of our law enforcement audience, examining armed protesters’ actions and challenges for police from a behavioral science perspective, then discussing infrastructure security as the country potentially faces another heated protest summer.

As you may have seen, GTSC's HSToday has developed a webinar and meetings channel on Zoom. Since the revelations about Zoom's security challenges, they have implemented new default security measures and GTSC has developed a two-step registration process to assure a safe and fun experience. Once you register here on Eventbrite, the day before the webinar or meeting GTSC will verify your membership, and once approved, you will receive another registration link from GTSC the day of the event. That is the ZOOM registration. Please click on the link and register for the webinar to get in and participate.
