There is a raging battle in America about the issue of gun control, gun violence and what many say is the easy accessibility of guns.

Both sides of the debate maintain a passionate stance.

Regardless of one’s personal view, there is an exhibit called “Unloaded” opening Thursday at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids that uses art to put people face to face with their own perceptions of guns in our society.

I'm not sure what this even means.  That we don't realize what our own perceptions are and that we have to see art to be confronted by them and realize them?

Also, rights are not subject to touchy-feely feelings.  Unfortunately, however, the infringement of those rights are!
