Let me start by saying this, this blog is not started to glorify my own beliefs about the impact of guns in our American society, it is merely to show that guns will remain a important part of civilized societies, offering stability and boundaries that were understood if crossed would result in serious consiquences.
I personally was never raised around any firearms, but non the less had a lasting interest in them. As with any kids, today or years before I was drawn in by the power and excitement that guns offered. But with an environment that was not welcoming or suited to gun ownership I had to develop my own views and rationals for owning guns.
Today as any owner I no longer see them just as a tool for power, but objects that serve many functions from sport to security.
To end this first post I leave you with this image to consider
