Eastern Region

 Welcome to Eastern Region

Coming Up at the COA Centre

We offer stimulating and interesting Friday talks at the COA Centre to our members in the Eastern Region.  Join us for our exciting Semester 2 programme, details in the course book.

This Week: The 2nd amendment of the American constitution: the right to bear arms presented by Dr Harry Melkonian, Macquarie Law School
The US population is 325 million; gun ownership is now over 400 million. How many mass killings are there each year and how does it compare to Australia? What is Australia`s firearm policy? Come and hear what is behind the 2nd amendment of the American constitution and its perplexing (to most of us) interpretation.

When: Friday 12  August 10.30 – 12.00
Where: The COA Centre, 25 Rowe St, Woollahra,
200m from Bondi Junction rail and bus (take Grafton St Exit); parking at Westfield – get the app and get 4 hours free.
