Format: Paperback
This book is mainly a detailed historical presentation of the disarming of citizens in various countries, followed by their extermination.

But some general issues are discussed first. One useful point is that "gun control" is a slogan and is nonsensical. One does not control a "gun." One controls human beings. Another useful discussion is the efforts of the government to suppress gun ownership by schooling children into hating guns and by doing everything possible to embarrass people who want to purchase a gun. Gun registration and the like have always been preludes to gun confiscation. And gun confiscation has always been a prelude to the oppression of some group of citizens.

The case studies are Cambodia, China, Germany, Rwanda, Turkey, Uganda, The Soviet Union, and Zimbabwe. There is also a chapter on the Catholic Church's opposition to gun ownership. And a chapter on the soaring crime rate since Britain banned guns.

The overwhelming question, of course, is why the United States, which has guaranteed gun ownership in the Constitution, is now moving toward banning guns. This is especially puzzling at a time when Americans are facing the greatest threats in our history. If you don't know this, read While America Sleeps: How Islam, Immigration and Indoctrination Are Destroying America From Within. Americans are going to need those guns because the government is not defending them.

Format: Paperback
The author is the founder of JPFO, Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership. Jews, of all people, should know and understand the value of private gun ownership. Jews have been the victims not only of the holocaust, but of slavery in Egypt and later, pogroms and persecution from at least 70 A.D. when the Romans destroyed the Second Temple and set about trying to re-enslave the Jews. Jews would figure this out, one would think, from current anti-semitism in Europe and the near worldwide neurotic blaming of Israel for the evil perpetrated upon it by the Palestinians. Apparently, the world considers good Jews to be the ones who allow themselves to be herded into gas chambers like sheep, but despises the ones who have the temerity to defend themselves.

Strangely, many if not most Jews hate guns and are against private gun ownership. They need to read this book. There are only 13 million Jews in the entire world. If so many had not been murdered as a result of lacking the means and the will to defend themselves, it has been estimated there would be at least 200 million.

I am not Jewish. But I think Jews are good for the world. I want there to be more of them. And if more of them would read this book and take Mr. Zelman's wisdom into their hearts, then not only their attitudes would be changed but also others. After all, Jews are intellectually influential.

If attitudes were thus changed there would be more guns in the private hands of law-abiding citizens. And that would be good for Jews, and everybody else.

Before you raise your voice against gun ownership, get the full picture of what happens when citizens in a country are disarmed, and denied the right to defend themselves. I also highly recommend the short movie, entitled "Innocents Betrayed". It is a real eye-opener!!

This is one of the best books I have read. It could also be named "Death by Government." I believe the educational value in this book is such that every adult American ought to read it. The authors repeatedly make the point: "A good government will never try to render its citizens defenseless - an evil government always will." And they provide the facts to back up their assertion.

Format: Paperback
Even Aristotle pointed out that to disarm a people was to enslave them. It would seem that human nature is to refuse to learn from history - believing, "That could NEVER happen here and now." The author presents several instances, in horrifying detail, of the enslavement and mass murder of millions upon millions of people - in just the last century. I'm sure these victims felt the same way at one time.

*Spoiler Alert*
We learned about many of these cases of genocide in school, watched it on the news and saw the graphic photos in various publications. What those sources DIDN'T tell us is that it all started with disarming the victims - the beginning of which was often well-intended "reasonable" gun control.

This is a "must read." Especially for those who think strict gun control equals public safety.

This book is factual and put together well, it shows what is the eventual outcome of gun control for those that suffer the consequences of letting political leaders disarm them.

For those who want the biggest argument for being pro-gun,here it is. Though it came out in 2001,it still has the best advice.

The gun control genocide chart(plus the type of victims and numbers).
The effects and mentality of gun control laws.

How gun bans led to mega-murder in Cambodia,China,Guatemala,Rwanda,Ottoman Turkey,Nazi Germany and the USSR.Plus invasions and confiscations in Zimbabwe and Great Britain.

We even learn this is not limited to other countries.African and Native Americans had almost been massively killed.Not to mention internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. Ironically,Japan is also mentioned of having a near firearm/sword ban.
After WWII,Senator Dodd copied a dangerous law from Nazi Germany...

Even religion has some basis in self-defense.Judaism and Catholic/Protestant Christianity enforce such arguments.

The plan of the United Nations to disarm civilians worldwide.

Violent police state tactics in Japan and America that condition us to be helpless.

And much more....
