This section of our education series addresses commonly debated positions or

misunderstood topics related to gun ownership. 

WARNING: These are very pro-gun, second-amendment opinions related to every

citizens right to carry and protect themselves with a firearm.

If an unarmed citizen feels safer waiting for the police to arrive, as their children,

family, and self are under attack, brutally raped or murdered--we honor and respect

their position.

By the same standard, if an armed citizen chooses to include a firearm as part of their

personal self-defense plan, we ask you respect their opinion as well.
