Beth, Paul, Gavin and Emma. AK-47, Bersa .380, Ruger P345.

Paul: "My family had guns the whole time I was a kid. Then I went off and joined the Army and went away and came back. I have guns now largely for the same reason I have fire extinguishers in the house and spare tires in the car. I'm a self-reliant kind of guy and there could come a time when I need to protect my family and I'm a self reliant kind of guy."

Beth: "I have one for self-protection. I was raised to never rely on anyone else to protect me or watch my back. It took me a year to pick out one that I liked." (Kyle Cassidy)
