Veteran Cemetery Project And America’s Gun Divide On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, America has roughly 400 million guns in circulation. Forty percent of adults say they have at least one firearm in their home. In our latest episode of Us & Them, host Trey Kay explores the foundations of the Second Amendment. There are some cultural and historical beliefs and myths that contribute to our very American divide over guns.

Also, in this show, a collaborative project is bringing light to the lives of veterans laid to rest at the state’s national cemeteries. Chris Schulz has more.
