The second gun owner I would like to introduce you to is Shawn, a member of a local militia group. This group trains to help in emergency situations, and they will also do armed patrols around the neighborhood. When Shawn goes out, he wears this uniform with a beret and open carries his firearm to openly show that he is with the militia. A gun is not a toy to him, and he never takes it out of the holster in public unless there is an actual need. The aim of Shawn and the group he works with is to be a support to local emergency services.
