In America Fights Back, through vivid real-life stories of citizens forced to face the reality of violence, Gottlieb and Workman provide an accounting of America s crime problem largely ignored by mainstream media. --Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President, National Rifle Association of America
Americans love books in which the good guys win. Gottlieb and Workman are adding to that proud tradition with America Fights Back by documenting case after case in which gun-owning citizens who refuse to wear the label victim remain the winners. --Jill J.R. Labbe, Deputy Editorial Page Editor, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
During my years in the U.S. House of Representatives serving on the Judiciary Committee, I tired of listening to the arguments of one gun-control advocate after another endlessly repeat the same tired, baseless arguments in support of their efforts to disarm law-abiding American citizens. Now, in America Fights Back Armed Self Defense in a Violent Age, we have a well-written defense of the Bill of Rights that provides both sound substantive arguments in support of the right to keep and bear arms, as well as true-life stories of how the Second Amendment works in practice not just in theory. This book ought to be required reading for every Member of the House and Senate; and every occupant of the White House --Former Congressman Bob Barr

With that as context, the remainder of the book gives the reader in a very engaging format a combination of scholarly works and anecdotal evidence that American can protect themselves from crime when allowed to.
The book provides evidence that right-to-carry laws have not led to the blood in the streets that many said. It shows that the lifting of the "Assault Weapons Ban" (sic) did not lead to an explosion in crime.
It also provides references to studies which show that gun control laws do not make any different in violent crime levels (a CDC study), and that, shockingly, criminals don't follow gun laws (a Department of Justice study).
Independent of which side of the gun debate you are on, this should be required reading so you can make an informed decision.
The author addresses all of those trite sound bites we so frequently hear trotted out by the liberal papers and "mainstream" media outlets universally opposed to firearms. Both of the authors are consummate professionals in the firearms business and active in the defense of our second amendment right.
I must admit, the most poignant thing I learned from this book is just how often American citizens use firearms for self defense and the defense of others. Even when exercised, our right to defend ourselves is never noted in the media. So many of us have lost the collective individualism (sounds odd, but it works - each American a self reliant individual yet working together as one nation) that made this nation the most powerful in the world.
If you aren't a gun owner, after reading this book you may become one.
Highly recommended for any gun fearing/ hating person who has been brainwashed my anti gun media and politicians that anyone with a gun is automatically a killer, and also the euphoric fantasy that if more strict gun laws are imposed upon law abiding gun owners, that all of a sudden crime will decrease. Stats show that criminals are not affected by gun laws, and if said criminals decide to visit your home in invited, and you have been disarmed, well good luck hoping the cops will save you, and good luck using that baseball bat to protect your family with.
This book also hits some common myths ( lies) that the anti-self defense crowd utilizes to further their agenda, and it hits it hard with historical facts and statistics.
The author should go for an new eddition , since times goes by and so violence
We need to be amore proactive society.
