7/21/10: Happiness is a Worn Gun


By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Dan Baum is not what you'd imagine as the typical concealed weapon carrier. He's a self-described Liberal Democrat, but he fell in love with guns as a kid at summer camp some 50 years ago and it became a life-long fascination. So last year, in an effort to learn more about "living the gun life," Baum decided to get a carry permit. Wednesday, he joins Doug to discuss what he learned about people who carry guns - and about himself.

Dan Baum's article "Happiness is a Worn Gun: My Concealed Weapon and Me" appears in the August issue of Harper's Magazine.
