GREAT BARRINGTON — Gregory Gibson lost his son, Galen, in 1992 when a student armed with a semiautomatic rifle shot him twice at Bard College at Simon’s Rock.

In response, Gibson sued the college, joined the gun-violence-prevention moment and fought for better gun control.

Now, more than 25 years later, he owns a gun.

So, why now? Gibson recently shared his personal account of why and how in a more than 7,000-word opinion piece published in the New York Times on June 1.
