What do 'gun guys' really think? Author Dan Baum shares what he's learned

The issue of gun control continues to dominate the political landscape, but like any sensitive issue, the most extreme voices tend to get the most attention.

Before the tragic shooting in Newtown, Dan Baum, a self-professed "gun guy," took an 18-month trip across the country. He bypassed the NRA and extreme anti-gun activists to speak directly with gun owners.

The results are in his new book "Gun Guys: A Road Trip." He joins Soledad on "Starting Point" this morning to talk about what he learned on his trip and some of the biggest misconceptions people have about gun owners.

    Yet another thing is that when you are evaluating a good on-line electronics store, look for online stores that are frequently updated, preserving up-to-date with the most up-to-date products, the top deals, in addition to helpful information on products and services. This will make sure that you are handling a shop that really stays over the competition and gives you what you should need to make knowledgeable, well-informed electronics acquisitions. Thanks for the important tips I have really learned from the blog.

    soledad, maybe more anti gunners should listen to dan baum. if your a reporter you must have heard. CRIME CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE!!! were they expecting it at schools, cinemas, restuarants or walking down the street?? no you dont expect it, but it does happen anywhere anytime. you guys must live in fantasy land if you dont have some kind of crime happening around you. what gets me is that you, the liberals & the government would rather NOT arm yourselves or law abiding citizens but rather have to wait 20 minutes or more for a cop to come WITH A GUN!!!! well its usually too late by then. if all the anti gunners and government took the time and money they spend on taking guns away from us law abiding citizens and put it towards more mental health help, going after the criminals & enforcing the laws they already have on the books we would have less crime & shootings. only a COMMUNIST would take the right to bear arms away, because unless your an idiot you know a criminal doesn't care about laws & will always find a way to get a gun or do crimes.
