A Conversation About Gun Culture

When it comes to guns and gun violence, we have fallen into a familiar pattern.  A mass shooting occurs, rhetoric about guns and gun ownership heats up, gun sales rise, nothing changes.  Then, the cycle repeats itself.  Both sides dig in and appear to be immovable. So we’re going to have a conversation about just what makes guns so comforting to some people and about responsible gun ownership.

Dan Starks - Founder and Owner of Starks Training Institute, Inc. He teaches gun safety and self-defense. 

Erin Wood - Assistant Professor of Psychology at Catawba College. She’s a gun owner. 

Taylor Hayden - Owner of Blackstone Shooting Sports
