America's Firearms Owners, Telling Their Own Stories

Half of American households have one or more firearms. While anti-gun media attempt to portray firearms owners as a fringe group, in reality, gun owners come from all segments of America society–rich and poor, black and white, Republican and Democrat, urban and rural.

Writer/photographer Kyle Kassidy has undertaken an interesting project entitled “Armed America — Portraits of Gun Owners in Their Homes”. To our surprise, this was a relatively neutral report that allows gun owners to explain, in their own words, why they own firearms. The reporter takes a “back seat” in this study, allowing gun owners to tell their own stories. Below is a 10-minute video combining audio interviews with still images of firearms owners. It’s worth watching, and worth recommending to your “liberal” friends who may hold negative stereotypes of firearms owners and target shooters.
