Event Description

An increasingly large number of Americans carry guns wherever they go.  They carry them to work; to the grocery store; and to pick up their kids from school. What are they afraid of? And how, if at all, does carrying a gun alleviate their fears? Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork at firearms training schools and interviews with people who carry guns on a regular basis, I examine the ways that gun owners think about and experience fear, safety, and violence.
