Guns saved his life
Kevin is a 36 year old Montreal-area resident who believes he would not have made it this far without guns in his life.
It's not because he had to protect himself against an intruder or any such circumstance. But Kevin says it's because, as a teenager living in a rural area, the choice for many youngsters was drugs and alcohol, or working at the local shooting club.
Kevin chose the shooting club and he's convinced that decision as a teenager literally saved his life when some of his friends died because of drugs and/or alcohol.
As you might expect, Kevin is no fan of a gun registry. We certainly didn't see eye to eye on that front.
But it was very interesting to hear what a self-described 'Average Joe' feels and thinks about being a gun owner these days, when so much attention is being focused on the issue of gun laws.
