Praise for The Seven Myths of Gun Control:
"A blockbuster book every freedom-loving American should read." —Christopher Ruddy, editor, NewsMax.com
"Every woman in America should read The Seven Myths of Gun Control. As the saying goes, 'God made man and woman, Colonel Colt made them equal.'" —Ann Coulter, syndicated columnist and bestselling author
"The Seven Myths of Gun Control shatters preconceived notions of the gun control debate. Richard Poe correctly points out that the Second Amendment is itself a civil right, a right desperately needed by society's most vulnerable citizens. For those concerned about all of our civil liberties, The Seven Myths of Gun Control is an invaluable resource." —Niger Innis, national spokesman, Congress of Racial Equality (CORE)
"This delightful, lively book exposes the myths of the firearms prohibitionists. Armed Americans won their Revolution, and armed Swiss dissuaded Hitler, while all too often the disarmed have been slaves or suffered genocide. Richard Poe shows that the right to bear arms is at the cutting edge of the eternal struggle for liberty." —Stephen P. Halbrook, Ph.D., J.D., author, That Every Man Be Armed and Target Switzerland
"Richard Poe has spoken a forbidden truth. Only a warrior people, armed and ready to defend their liberties, can expect to live free. As a Comanche, I know that he who takes my bow is my enemy." —David A. Yeagley, columnist, FrontPageMagazine.com

From the Author
The Seven Myths of Gun Control was written not out of any personal zest for firearms, but out of my sense of duty as a journalist and citizen. I could no longer stand silent while my Constitution was shredded. The Second Amendment was not written to protect the rights of hunters and sportsmen, but rather to ensure a vital liberty, important to every American. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book might not apply to those elites with enough resources to afford there own security force (i.e. Rosie O'Donnell). If you can hire a gun toting body guard, that's one less item (the gun) you will have carry yourself.
This book relentlessly chews into the seven primary myths of gun control, and does it very effectively. By the end of the book, there is no doubt in your mind that the only solution to the gun control debate is to end all compromise with liberals and prevent any more gun control laws from being passed. We must return to our roots, as a nation of riflemen, if we are to reduce crime and violence and restore a true sense of patriotism among our children.
It's worth considering that EVERY single scholar who has seriously researched the statistics of gun laws and crime rates, just as John Lott did with his book, "More Guns, Less Crime", has turned over to the conservative side. Nobody who really trys to understand the truth goes back to the liberal point of view. People who are for gun control usually have allowed their own feelings to decide for them. This book will clear away all doubt.
For anyone who has an interest in this critical nationwide issue, or knows somebody who does, this book needs to be in your hands as soon as possible.
"ERFURT, Germany, April 26 - In a rampage shooting eerily evoking the likes of Columbine, but even more deadly, a recently expelled student today entered his former school here and methodically killed 17 people, going room to room with a rifle and a handgun, before turning a gun on himself.
It was one of the worst school killings of its type anywhere, the kind of violence that Germans and indeed most Europeans have considered an overwhelmingly American problem. The rampage seemed all the more disturbing because it occurred in a country with gun-control laws so strict that the number of shooting deaths nationwide each year is barely half that of New York."
Gun control laws do not stop criminals!
