When it comes to guns, Marciarea Torney-Daramanu is sure of one thing.
“With my kids now? When they get of age to own a gun I will make sure they are trained to use a gun,” she said.
She didn’t always feel this way. On a rainy day she shows me into her kitchen in her home in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Macon. She points to a magnet on her refrigerator.
“This is my son right here,” Marciarea said.
The photo is Stacy K. Johnson, Jr., Marciarea’s son. He’s holding his children.
“He’s the one that got killed right there,” she said.
