Meredith Simpson discusses becoming a gun owner in the District. The Memphis, Tennessee native joins Cam Edwards in studio to talk about her decision to legally purchase a .38 for self-defense in her D.C. home and the extensive application process she endured to achieve that goal. Simpson says she had grown up around guns and had been surprised to learn about the gun ban when she first moved to the capital four years ago.
