"You really have to get past that perspective of the fear of firearms," said Ed Kelly, a gun safety instructor.
That's why Kelly teaches gun safety courses, which is required if you're going to apply for a concealed weapons permit. He says there's a lot of positives to owning a gun, like recreational activities and family tradition.
"The aspect of shooting firearms was something I did with my dad and brother when I was very young. You can take enjoyment from it."
Gun owner Bradley Gainer agreed. "It's time to spend outside. It's a family activity with me and my daughter, and it's been kind of like a family tradition."
Bradley Gainer said, "I can't say I agree with all Americans having a broader background check. The thing is, you're restricting my rights under the Second Amendment, which I don't really appreciate."
