Gun Control--Democratic Debate--Are our babies safe? YouTube video
Who's gonna keep our "babies" safe?
Jered Townsend, Michigan Gun Enthusiast
Weapons Enthusiast Takes Aim at Dem Candidates
Jered Townsend is a single, 30-year-old gun enthusiast in who lives north of Flint, Michigan, on a rural road with his parents and his baby.
Well, "baby" is his way of putting it. He doesn't have children.
As America learned Monday in the Dem candidate debate, Townsend's "baby" is a Bushmaster AR15 semiautomatic rifle, all black and polished and pretty.
He does like his weapons.
"It'a just my hobby, you know?" the proud owner of "11 or 12" guns and a concealed weapons permit said Tuesday afternoon.
The view of U.S. Sen. Joe Biden was that Townsend "needs help."
Townsend's mom said "He likes shooting. He's very proud of that gun."
Townsend said, "I got all kinds of stuff." "I have a 30-30 deer rifle...
couple of .22s, four pistols..a couple of shotguns.
Townsend said he doesn't carry a gun often, mostly around the holidays when he goes Christmas shopping when the "stores are packed and you know you got cash on you. Anything can happen anywhere."
A Detroit Free Press article on Jered Townsend's "babies" is linked below.
