Average Gun Owner

An article about a seemingly average gun owner. He considers himself liberal and votes almost entirely Democratic. He talks about his own motivations for owning a gun- while he recognizes the statistics that say that owning a gun puts him and his family at danger, it’s not what drives his decision. He remarks on the duality of the feeling of powerlessness in society versus the innate disposition for men to serve as protectors.
