What role does fear and trust play in the gun safety debate? I recently sat down for a follow up conversation on the topic of gun safety with 2 friends of mine from Braver Angels. In December of 2021, I conducted a round table event with some friends on the same topic. A lot of things were left unsaid and unresolved in that conversation, as many conversations go when it comes to contentious topics. I asked my friends Mark Beckwith and Paul Norris to rejoin me for this follow-up conversation.
No matter what side of the issue you are on, we have to keep having the conversation. The conversation has to be had in a civil way. Without conversation, ignorance, fear and thus hate will continue to grow. Ask yourself again, “what role does fear and trust play in the gun safety debate?”
