What Can We Do About Gun Violence? The Rex Harsin Interview (podcast)

Dan talks with Rex Harsin about his new documentary called “Beating Guns,” made with Shane Claiborne and Michael Martin of RAWTools. What does it mean to believe in and follow a non-violent savior while wielding a gun? Can a Christian be a peacemaker while being licensed to carry? What does it mean to be a follower of Christ living in a nation that is saturated with gun violence? These are some of the questions Beating Guns addresses.
