Personal Experiences (Artifact)
Not too long ago my dad purchased a gun, "to defend you guys" he said, but I was only frightened. A gun could do so much, a gun started this whole movement and to see that object right in front of me just gave me a bad taste in my mouth. I don't think my parents are killers but the fact they know a gun can do and still buying it makes me just feel so wrong in my stomach and scared.
The Police side of things
