Amanda Collins is a young rape survivor. While in college in 2007, she was raped 50 feet away from the campus police department office at the University of Nevada-Reno and was lucky to get out alive. Her attacker was James Biela, a serial rapist who raped two other women and murdered another. He attacked her at gun point in a gun free zone. At the time of the attack, Collins was in possession of a concealed weapons permit but was not in possession of her firearm due to university policies prohibiting carrying concealed weapons on campus. She was also a second degree black belt at the time and walked to the parking garage with a large group of people.

"If I had been carrying that night, two other rapes would have been prevented and a young life would have been saved," Collins said. "All of these are just sentiments that give a false sense of security. In my experience I know that the university that I attended, the University of Nevada-Reno, they didn't didn't have any call boxes the night I was attacked. They afterwards installed them but I can tell you that a call box above my head while I was straddled on the parking garage floor being brutally raped wouldn't have helped me one bit. The safe zone? I was in a safe zone and my attacker didn't care," Collins said. "It's known that I could see the police cruisers less than 50 feet away from me, from where I was being attacked but the moment I saw those cruisers, I knew at the same time that no one was coming for me....they were all off duty. The offices had closed. They weren't in their cruisers, there was no one there. A whistle wouldn't have gotten anybody's attention. It was isolated, it was late at night.

Format: Paperback
The author, Heidi Yewman, argues for gun control using a gun-control activist's best and only tool: emotion. She carefully selected emotional stories that stimulate more emotion. Ironically, each story actually illustrates the need for responsible adults to own and carry firearms for self-protection and to train with them. Each illustrates the simple fact that police (people with guns) cannot protect us -- there simply aren't enough of them to provide every American with 24-hour protection. When criminal attacks occur, the police (people with guns) usually arrive just in time to photograph the victim's violated and/or lifeless body and to start looking for the perpetrator.

For example, there is the story about a woman who had to wait hours for police (yup, people with guns) to show up to rescue her -- after she'd already been shot multiple times! If that woman (and the other victims in this book) had owned and used a gun, she could have stopped the attack instantly. According to criminologist Gary Kleck (see links below for books documenting his and other worthy research), that is exactly what happens thousands of times each day across the US -- good people stopping criminal attacks with guns -- usually without firing a shot.

The argument for responsible gun ownership and defensive use thereof is based on facts -- not emotion. If you want an emotional argument, read Beyond the Bullet. On the other hand, for a primer on the facts ignored by people like Heidi Yewman, read Gun Facts,
