The following video is a lunch talk given by David Yamane, Professor of Sociology at Wake Forest University, to the National Firearms Law Seminar in Indianapolis, IN on 26 April 2019. Professor Yamane talks about his journey from being a card carrying liberal snowflake college professor to being a card carry liberal snowflake gun owner, and the lessons he has learned about gun culture along the way.
Yamane’s journey was a long and winding. He admits that the formation, or realization, of guns and the gun culture was often hampered by the liberal leaning bubble he lived and worked in—academia.
After his conversion, one of his major questions looking back, was “how did it take 42 years for me to fire my shot?” Many factors came together to bring the professor to the gun culture, including his wife, community, and social media—each provides a lesson to winning the war to protect the Second Amendment. Coming from the world of anti-gunners, Professor Yamane also offers his opinions on how best to bridge the gap and bring more anti gunners into the pro Second Amendment camp.
