Gottleib and Workman have written a book that not only rebuts, but in many cases refutes, the arguments of people opposed to individual ownership of firearms, concealed carry, etc.

I must admit I have a slight prejudice being a gun enthusiast and belonging to an Internet gun list to which Dave Workman also belongs.

It's an easy read, providing the facts and figures and statistics, but in a way that is easily digestible by gun owner and gun hater alike.

Unlike some pro-gun books _ and some anti-gun books as well _ this volume is not a screed. It is written calmly and concisely, as Dave's articles are.

I would find it 100% impossible for anyone to read this book, and remain an anti-gun/anti-american rights advocate. After truly reading this, one could not say any negative comments about a citizens right to bear arms. It is our patriotic duty to arm ourselves. If you dont like that fact, move to Cuba or China.

This country is one of the last that affords its citizens the right to defend themselves. It is no accident that the 2nd amendment is second in the Constitution. If you want the truth about the right of gun ownership and how the media and politicians spin the truth and facts to gain more power then this book is a must read.

This book gives some facts that will not be seen in any publications such as newspapers, television, etc. There are myths about guns and owning guns that are addressed in this book. Facts that have been distorted to the general public are discussed in this publication as well.

I would recommend this book to anyone who currently owns a gun or rifle.

In addition, ordering this book through Amazon is going to be a professional and pleasing experience to all. Great service and professional products.

The book gives an outstanding description of the real facts that anti-gunners ignore totally. You will get extremely good reponses to oposing statements. This book is a must have for your library.

Format: Paperback
I greatly enjoyed this book and could not put it down. The authors do a fantastic job of debunking the lies and countering the duplicitous antics of the gun prohibitionist crowd. Every chapter is relevant to past and present 2nd Amendment issues which 2nd Amendment proponents are constantly encountering across our great nation. I would highly, and without reservation, recommend this book to any and every 2nd Amendment proponent in order to be better equipped for debating the issues with hoplophobes (person with an irrational fear of guns/weapons). True hoplophobes are difficult to convert because they can't stand the truth, but fence-sitters could easily be persuaded with the points, arguments, and various rationales in this book. This book is a training manual for 2nd Amendment debates with your family, friends, neighbors, and especially your legislators. I just finished reading the book, but I plan to reread it multiple times in order to drive all of the rock solid arguments into my brain for future reference. Don't be caught unequipped for gun/concealed carry debates when this book is available. It will make you more informed and it is an indispensable resource. I plan to purchase additional copies to give to others. Great job Mr. Gottlieb and Mr. Workman! This was a yeoman's work and a treat to read.
