“Safe Storage Map” Illustrates The Need For National Conversation — Bearing Arms article featuring WTTA
November 9, 2021
Walk the Talk America was highlighted in an article by John Petrolino on BearingArms.com. In it, Petrolino brings up the need for an important conversation about methods to safely and legally store firearms during a period of crisis.
WTTA board member and licensed marriage and family therapist, Jake Wiskerchen, was cited in the article —
“… Jake Wiskerchen, told me that many of his patients own firearms and are skittish even to enter counseling because they are afraid of being judged or having their guns taken.
Wiskerchen said that WTTA’s efforts aim to change that suspicion by training mental health clinicians about gun culture by offering cultural competence classes that are good for continuing education credit. But he also said that the other side of that coin is to demystify for gun owners what counseling means and how it works”
