Dr. Robert Young is an associate clinical professor at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, and a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. The spokesman for Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership talks about the concept of gun culture, explaining that the term is used by both pro and anti-gun advocates in completely different ways. Pro-gun forces use it to describe the varied interests of those who hunt, prepare for self-defense, shoot recreationally or competitively, and collect antiques. President Obama famously used the term as a criticism of gun owners, who bitterly "cling to guns or religion." Dr. Young says the article was inspired by the expression "Gun Culture 2.0." Originally aired on Cam & Co 09/21/15.
