There are some lively exchanges here at the Legal Examiner as different writers have looked at issues of gun violence and what can be done about it. I am interested in the issue having learned to shoot as a small child under the watchful eyes of my father. He was an avid hunter and strong supporter of the NRA. He taught my brother and I many lessons about how to properly handle firearms. At the same time, how can anyone not be moved by the tragedies that have happened in our schools nationally?
Here are some pieces I have recently found of interest::

A founding partner with Bradshaw & Bryant, Mike Bryant has always fought to find justice for his clients—knowing that legal troubles, both personal injury and criminal, can be devastating for a family.
