Just as the cicadas comeback from virginia looking like little creepy aliens that the kind of you. Luckily kelly join me for a great chat with frequent podcast guest and director. Brady's unveiling fire program. Ted bonar along with firearm instructor and gun. Safety advocate chris. West west was absolutely amazing walking through the differences between safety and security how to better talk about firearm ownership. And what happens when you fail your own mom for a concealed carry permit ted. Kelly glad to have you with us. I feel like people should know you at this point. You've been awesome any and your beloved. But still i'm going to have you introduce yourself anyway. Hi i'm ted. Bonar clinical psychologists and. I'm the director of and family fire so chris. Can you introduce yourself to over followers. You know hopefully making yourself as beloved. Ted homeland i have but i think i think it's worth it but my name is west just like as the direction is. I'm a father of two rambunctious boys prior military. But i do mention the military park. That's one day. Distinction of there's a lot of times military card is played but then really what does that mean. I feel like there. It's a bittersweet thing of value that's put into you know. The military car to the veteran cards played. But really. what's the experience on. What what have you done with that experience because well in the military did different things as far as like a little vacation for anti-terrorism and fancy word of operations scary just kind of looking at those different details to try to prevent a reduce kind of harm risk and whether that is physical or electron iq cyber on that. I may shoot firearm at but really kind of a big thing kind of stepping into this space kind of overarching is really trying to rhetoric. And i i know. Sometimes it's seen as a bad word but really if you can kind of define what people are talking about then you can conversations better and more progressive because we're saying we're we might be saying the same things or we might be saying things could be different but i'm hearing you saying what you're not saying what you are but i'm not hearing that the suicide. I wonder if you could explain as a firearms advocate. What actually brought you into your interest with guns. So for my mind's kind of an interesting rollercoaster become a gun owner where through kinda later childhood grew up with my grandparents and my grandfather Years decades ago worked as a special police department stores carried a revolver care of service weapon On handbook. For what. I knew him as he was. Just your good old blue-collar General motors retiree. But he had fires in the home. But i really wouldn't our household. You know a firearm house order. You know we didn't own you know my grandfather possess them but they really never were any kind of presence. Though kind pry has come up a little bit later always knew of my grandfather. They call a crack shot. Hog rifle was a one shot. Low twenty rifle twenty two long rifle caliber but a rifle that i unfortunately played with and wasn't two years later that i was able to mentally kind of connect the dots of like. Oh there's this rival that was in the closet and realizing all the that was on the top left dresser founded put those two together that would have been pads but within that. But like i said i think as a little bit later also is where that was. That was not good and i really wasn't tat farms but it was kind of more of a it's out of mines That i kinda used in kind of my personal end volunteer professional way. And so we're at a paintball gun when i was a teenager. You know where. I was like that of you know shooting each other paint but actually when i wanna not the first time i ever shot arm was qualifying and then it wasn't until actually years later even through you know my different friends and workers would take me out. Shooting under really was a fire owner. Jill actually i define how a family member whereas is old service weapon and he was getting a new one and and so i was. You know looked at it pressures right. Everything looked great. But really even after i got it is kind of what they call a safe queen Which means it just stayed my office safe at. It was locked up in there. And i never really us really active until then kind of years later actually after getting married and actually getting my concealed carry license that kind of bloomed as a gun owner and really researching had kind of being kind of active. Really making a lifestyle at the difference of you know being to me not just possessing farm. Because i think a lot of people possess firearms restraint actually owning and operating for firearm for walkman as wondering. If you continue telling us about your journey with fire on a sharing a little bit about how you went from being someone who owned and understood them to becoming a firearms instructor so it was actually actually got the military was kind of still at mike silkair license that time and then through kind of different interventions to where ended up actually decided to start teaching conceal carry and that was kinda moron kinda two different levels. One the things that i learned new as a carrier things that learned that even most military or even governance today and wouldn't know about that actually would kind of prevent the use of having a firearm and so and so through kind of aren't structure. That was kind of my how to kind of answering. Why do i. why why me. Why is a private instructor. How am i really different than the big box stores. A gun range you know. There are fully accredited and whole staff bear to west individual single instructor. And that's kind of where. I came to whereas different zayed small class site to where my mother was. Actually my first students that my number one student an actually. She's an only student ever failed but through that of wife hers. The phrase couldn't hit the rats were barn was completely true and so it wasn't until i started looking. I'm trying to all on mental of trying to get her to the shooting. The the paper and i realized because our carpal tunnel when she was shooting her wrist was kind of can't down she was almost gonna hit really low and wasn't hitting anything on the paper and i even went to where i was thinking ahead. And have you think your desk sized calendars you know to wear their. You know ten inch by twenty inch and still wasn't hitting thing inside realize. Oh that's kind of things. I knew to kind of think about but i i did i. I seriously doubt her now. She was the only student ira failed. And i was kinda the thing where i would start my glasses off and kind of growing and really emphasizing attitude and so we're that was very important. That's one of the credentials to be able to actually certify. Somebody's you hit the wings off a nap. But if you're attitude isn't there. I'm not gonna put my name on it. I'm not going to you know my name. My life my reputation on the line just four. You know somebody that could be expert shooter. But i'm not gonna have that name on it. Unless i see the attitude that goes with that and i want to know what life's like after you failure mom.

Woodrow cox. I'm a staff writer at the washington post. And i'm the author of children under fire in american crisis. The sort of the short summary of the book is it's meant to be really an intimate account of the way that gun. Violence devastates this country and anna anna. Also a bit of a path forward in ways that we could make some small differences to help those kids both before and after they suffer trauma from gun wiles. I think intimate is a perfect word to describe this book as you detail. The ways in which children are impacted by gun violence through stories of a handful of children. What i'm wondering is what prompted you to write. Not just about the physical effects of gun violence in what that effect is on children but the psychological ex i think that so much of the coverage around the way that kids are impacted by gun. Violence focuses on the kids who get shot. We have such a narrow focus. And this really applies. I think to adults as well. There's this really narrow focus on and that's the headlines. I mean we can look at what happened yesterday. As an example. There's a school shooting all the cable news. Networks make a calculation to say. Let's wait and see how many people died right. One person died they move on. That's not an high enough death
