Portia with her Beretta 96, Anthony with his Remington 870


Portia: I learned to shoot a gun when I was 10 or 11. My mother had a boyfriend who was a San Luis Obispo County Sherrif, and he lived in a teepee with a "wolf dog". We'd stay out there, eat ashcakes for breakfast and shoot his guns .The first time I shot a shotgun, I landed on my ass and laughed uncontrollably the way you do when you're a kid.

Anthony: I own a gun because I'm a fuckin' American and a Marine. It's my God-given right.
