                                                        I grew up with
                                                        guns.  Everyone
                                                        knows that.  But
                                                        you know what?
                                                        My parents NEVER
                                                        supported any
                                                        bad behavior
                                                        from me.  I was
                                                        terrified of
                                                        doing something
                                                        bad at school,
                                                        as I would have

                                                        until I
                                                        corrected the
                                                        problem and
                                                        straightened my
