Are You Carryin'?

“In an average year, roughly a hundred thousand Americans are killed or wounded with guns.”

“When carrying a concealed weapon for self-defense is understood not as a failure of civil society, to be mourned, but as an act of citizenship, to be vaunted, there is little civilian life left.”

From “Battleground America,” by Jill Lepore, THE NEW YORKER, April 23, 2012
