Michael Joins Houston Matters to Talk About Gun Comfort

Michael joined Houston Matters this past week to discuss “Why Are Some People Afraid of Guns, While Others Feel Safer When They’re Around?”.  Here is the excerpt from the Houston Matters website.

As the Texas Legislature takes on open carry and campus carry bills, psychologist Michael Winters
joins us to contemplate what goes on in our minds when we enter a room, and we know someone there has a gun — and why some among us feel safer, while others feel threatened.

We also discuss what’s happening psychologically when we’re the ones carrying the weapon.


Michael Winters is a Psychologist in Houston focusing on marriage counseling and therapy. Michael received his PhD from the University of Memphis and has been practicing since 1991.
