Mike Coombs, co-owner of Outdoor Emporium and Sportco stores located in Seattle, WA, joined tndc to discuss the very sensitive and controversial issue of gun control. Since the school shooting in Parkland, FL, millennials have taken the helm of this conversation leading to walk-outs and marches across the United States. We do a quick history review of the context of the Second Amendment to frame the debate, talk through the importance of gun safety and responsible ownership, and implications on industry and business owners. As always, we attempt to propose solutions rather than talk in circles around the issue.
