#81: Dads of Daughters, Put Down Your Guns
All too often, we see dads in the news threatening their daughters’ boyfriends with various forms of bodily harm. Recently, it was former NFL kicker Jay Feely holding a gun by his side as he wished his daughter and her date a good time at prom. The Internet blew up with the usual debates about guns, but we saw another issue though-- fathers of sons don't want their children to be treated like predators. For this episode, we brought together some of our favorite dads to offer Mr. Feely and other dads of daughters a different perspective. Jason Greene, Mike Reynolds, and Chris Bernholdt offer their perspective as dads of daughters, and Whit Honea offers his perspective as a father of sons.
