Kyle Cassidy loves to shoot -- cameras, that is. But in 2004, this freelance writer-photographer embarked on a nationwide road trip in search of another breed of shooters, America's gun owners. Such was the genesis of "Armed America: Portraits of American Gun Owners in Their Homes," which hits bookstores Aug. 1, 2007. According to Cassidy, the book is less about firearms and the controversial place they occupy in today's society, and more about the American experience. "This is not a book about guns," said Cassidy. "It's a book about people."
