I can remember a time when the Constitution and the tenants on which our country was founded evoked a sense of pride. Now, this document is a symbol of the deepening chasms between factions of the American people. 

Christened .223 is a small statement about the irony of our constitutional rights, and how one person’s ideas of freedom might take shape in a way that destroys the freedom of others.
