Owensboro senior Alexa Lamar sits in her home with her semi-automatic pistol. “I think it is useful for protection if you’re in a situation where you may need it. My dad bought me a BB gun when I was really little and so it became something with my dad. It’s recreation as well as protection. I’m definitely pro-second amendment. I think that since it’s in our constitution that amendment shouldn’t be infringed upon,” Lamar said. Brittany Greeson/HERALD
