PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Gun enthusiast Jeff Bertoni and the hosts of the Root Sports Hunting show “Right Outside,” Jeff Bowman and Matt Prepelka, all have their own ideas about the respect and responsibility necessary for gun ownership.

Many American’s affection for fire arms is nothing new and gun collectors like Jeff Bertoni have a “love affair” with various types of guns.

“Some people like to collect stamps, I like to collect guns,” Bertoni said.

NewsRadio 1020 KDKA’s Rob Pratte also learned respect for guns by his father. He says for the pair, it was a “form of communication” and bonding.

Prepelka says people featured on his show should respect game laws just as much as safe gun practices.

He also said he believes “the second amendment demands personal responsibility,” and that “unfamiliarity with weapons causes people to fear them.”

Bowman also said respects weapons and loves hunting, and that he feels hunting “is about getting into the woods” and getting back to a simpler time.

Listen to Rob Pratte Saturdays 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA.
