Guns With A History Change Minds

I am not a gun advocate. I have no interest in them and came across this video of people all excited to buy their first gun for “protection”. Watch what happens when they learn the history of the guns they are eager to purchase.     Written by Basil Rene © 2015 All Rights Reserved
