'Sons with Guns,' the compelling new black and white photography by Hans Proppe, features young boys holding, promoting or using guns. Taken as a comment on American culture, Proppe's photos reveal the dark side of the availability of guns across America. That children are able to have access to these weapons is provoking as a political statement, though captured in an artistic fashion.

Controversy over the gun law debate has been of great importance in America for quite some time now, but this new disconcerting take encourages viewers to rethink who these guns are available to. In the photos, boys as young as about 4 years of age to young men are portrayed perpetuating gun culture across America. Stats for Provocative Pistol Photography Trending: Older & Buzzing
