Description

Loaded Conversations is about living in gun-lovin' America. A temporary East Coaster moves her family back to her native Ohio and finds the new neighbors armed to the teeth. Why? And what does it mean to live this way? Writer and mother Rebecca Flowers, who's never owned a gun in her life (and probably shouldn't), talks with people on all sides of the issue while sharing her own frank perspective.

Loaded Conversations is a Must-Listen for Americans

The issue of gun violence and how to deal with it has polarized Americans, and it shouldn't. Most of us want the same thing — to protect our loved ones — but we come at it from vastly different directions based on upbringing and beliefs. Some feel it’s a “god-given” right while others just simply hate the government telling them what to do, but 93% of Americans support background checks on all gun sales. What is wrong with that? Why would anyone want a criminal, a potential terrorist on the no-fly list, a domestic abuser, or dangerously mentally ill person to purchase a handgun? I love this podcast as I’m hoping it brings folks back to center. Most gun owners and non gun owners are reasonable people and we all want to protect our kids — to do that, shouldn’t we be doing everything we can to make sure we keep deadly weapons out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them? I know, I know — Criminals don’t obey laws. Right. Well, we sure as heck shouldn’t make it easy for them, and if gun trafficking were a federal crime that would go a long way to stop the flow of guns into the hands of criminals. Nobody wants to take a gun away from a law-abiding citizen. Responsibly lock them up around kids, only sell them to folks who passed a background check, and make trafficking a federal crime. It’s not rocket science and I hope this podcast will help everyone figure that out. I think the issue is less polarizing than the NRA and politicians make it out to be. We can figure this out if they’d stop worrying so much about gun sales and care about human beings instead.

Wow

Great episode, insightful, with lots of great information. I am so sorry for her.

Fresh approach to gun violence

Honestly, when I started listening, I was afraid the host would bend over backwards to be fair to the other side. The other side - anyone who feeds into the US's unbelievable gun culture - does not need fairness. But it does help to know how these people see the world and their need for guns. So far, Rebecca seems to be a great guide. She's brave, raw, and witty. She's outraged by things that everyone should be outraged by, but she brings new angles to it. I hope she keeps up, and I hope she doesn't let the gun-nut trolls bum her out. Because I fear they will try...
