It provides clear, rational arguments as to why law-abiding American citizens have a right to carry a firearm in their own defense and what can happen when no one but the "bad guy" is armed. It also provides a superb "how to" primer for those of us desiring to take back that right from our state legislatures who have taken it from us, as they have done in Maryland.
Ms. Hupp is a brilliant writer - clear, concise, no put-ons - with a knack for story telling that you will not soon forget. In addition, Ms. Hupp gives us something else that hasn't been front and center in our culture for a long time: Suzanna Hupp is a true American hero. She is the real deal - a doer!
She put her life on hold to champion this cause for us, incurring huge losses in personal income and self-sacrifice along the way. And she did so for one reason; because she believes so strongly in what she says.
I hope every law-abiding American citizen buys multiple copies of her book, spreads its word, and actively works to take back what was once rightfully theirs - their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Buy this book and I assure you, you will read it! I salute you Ms. Hupp, and I'd be honored to serve on your team any day!

This book is not: A factual run down of the Lubys Shooting. It is not a political perspective of her work. It is not a firearms manual. This is not an autobiography.
This book shows her personality and gives a brief background of things that formed her mindset. She goes though what she experienced that day at Luby's and the following weeks and years. She does talk about the politics from a personal perspective. Reading this book is like sitting down and chatting with a dear friend. The message is conveyed in a way that is powerful. The way she describes somethings are like you were sitting in the room and watching this transpire.
Love or hate guns this is a great read about an average person thrust into an extreme circumstance and her will to step up and work for what she believes in.

As Susanna points out, a gun is no more than a tool. A gun has no life of its own yet it's feared by those who do not understand it. A gun cannot kill. People kill with a gun...or a knife, or a fist, or a hammer or a....
This is such a well written book I highly recommend it to every American. She's included the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, something every American should know by heart.
When I saw this book in print, I wanted to know the full story. What a good job this book does telling it! It's an easy, fast read and as the story is told gives a well-reasoned rationale for self-defense and concealed carry of firearms. In this country we can choose not to be victims.
I recommend this book to anyone who wonders why someone would want to carry a gun. (And to anyone else who just wants to read a great true-life story.)
