Americans with guns - photo collection of people and their weapons

The American National Rifle Association estimated that in 1999 there were about 215,000,000 guns in American with about one gun in every second household.

Photographer Kyle Cassidy began to wonder who these people actually were and over two years undertook the task of photographing and interviewing 100 American gun owners in their homes.

Kyle Cassidy traveled 15,000 miles over two years photographing Americans in their homes and asking one question: “Why do you own a gun?”

A good question, particularly since most of these guns are not easily reconcilable with the notion of self-defense and their true place should be somewhere in the Armed Forces.

All the photo were later compiled in the book with its German edition being published this year. The pics below are taken from the latter. As said by Alan Cooperman from The Washington Post: “Each picture in Armed America could be a pro-gun advertisement - or an anti-gun poster. That’s what makes the book so riveting.”

One of the strangest images is this one. Check out the giant alien in the corner, and the hairless cat.

What idiot in they're right mind (hold on, that last part had no logic whatsoever lol) would be showing off they're fully automatic firearms.....WITH THEY'RE FACES SHOWING!?!?!?

As for the guns themselves. Thats nothing. I have a cousin in the United States south with more guns than the taliban. 5 huge green gun safes. Redeneck are the biggest gun and alcohol lovers ive ever seen. At least, I always felt at home :P
