Armed America: Portraits of Gun Owners in Their Homes

Photographs by Kyle Cassidy.

The question of gun ownership in America is a fractious one. Even the number of guns in the country is in significant debate. The National Rifle Association (NRA), the country’s largest pro-gun lobbying group, quotes the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)’s estimate that in 1999 there were about 215,000,000 guns in America and one gun in about half of the households in the country. The Brady Campaign (the nation’s leading anti-gun coalition) estimates there are 192,000,000 guns in America, owned by 39% of the population.

This isn’t a book about guns. It’s a book about people.
