Q: What would you like to say to those that are anti gun or maybe just unsure of the purpose of guns in our society today?
A: This is a great question. When I grew up I traveled a lot, and in certain areas there is just an “anti gun” culture. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized the importance/purpose of guns. Recently here in Utah a gunman went into a mall and started shooting. Well he did kill some people, but who knows how many peoples’ lives were saved that day thanks to an off duty officer who was carrying his gun with him.
Q: What parting remarks or comments you would like to make or promote?
A: My parting remarks would be that life, especially these days, is unpredictable. Anything could happen so it is always a good idea to be prepared for as much as possible.
