Guns & Responsibility

Guns, the second amendment, gun rights, and gun control are topics that often bring forth strong passions and opinions. A conversation that focuses on our own personal experience with guns and how these experiences have shaped our opinions can help us develop a deeper understanding of the opportunities and challenges surrounding gun ownership.
