Conceptual Statement: This piece is wrapped around the idea of an armed individual that is not out to do harm, aka, "good person with a weapon". This piece is to emphasize that not all people who have weapons are bad and that there are those who have what they have for the fun and enjoyment of the hobby, and it is also for those who carry their weapons for the protection of their peers.
