Kyle Cassidy traveled 15,000 miles over two years photographing Americans in their homes and asking one question: “Why do you own a gun?”

A good question, particularly since most of these guns are not easily reconcilable with the notion of self-defense and their true place should be somewhere in the Armed Forces. All the photos were later compiled in the book with its German edition being published this year. The pics below are taken from the latter. As said by Alan Cooperman from The Washington Post: “Each picture in Armed America could be a pro-gun advertisement – or an anti-gun poster. That’s what makes the book so riveting.” Check out Kyle’s Site HERE
