Gun ownership in the US has changed, and with it, how that ownership is viewed and studied. One person studying those changes -- and a participant in them -- is sociologist and gun owner Dr. David Yamane. Dr. Yamane, author of the book Concealed Carry Revolution: Expanding the Right to Bear Arms in America and the blogs Gun Culture 2.0 and Gun Curious, joined hosts Kelly and JJ to discuss what he (and Michael Bane) call Gun Culture 2.0 -- namely, the emerging trend where individuals don't enter gun culture through hunting, military service, or family tradition, but out of personal defense concerns.
