    “It was important for me, in light of what has been going on in America with all of the mass shootings and ongoing gun debate, as a foreigner, to understand their love and why this was so important to them and why guns are so important to so many people in this country”

    Photographer Charles Ommanney criss crossed the country, meeting gun owners and learning why they choose to bear arms. See more from American Gun Stories on Reportage, and now online at msnbc.

    A teenager was shot and killed by police in the South Bronx on Sunday night after police spotted him running down the middle of the street with a handgun in pursuit of another person. The teenager allegedly ignored orders to stop and the policeman, a rookie cop just one month out of the Academy, fired once, striking him in the jaw. You can read more about this story in the New York Times.

    The officers involved had been assigned to the neighborhood as part of the police department’s Operation Impact, which sends rookie cops to patrol high-crime neighborhoods, and which was documented by Reportage photographer Antonio Bolfo between 2008 and 2010.

    You can see more of Antonio’s photos of Operation Impact on the Reportage Web site.

    As the gun control debate heats up in the US, we’ve been looking back at this great work by Zed Nelson.


    Mike, father and gun owner. “It’s my constitutional right to own a gun and protect my family.”  

    TIME originally published photographer Zed Nelson’s photo essay about American gun culture in 1998. In light of the recent incidents of mass gun violence in Colorado and Wisconsin, Nelson revisits the work he started in the ‘90’s.
