Guns, Freedom, and TerrorismBook - 2003
On September 11, 2001, America was defiled by terror -- our people mass murdered by fanatics willing to forfeit their own lives to kill as many innocent civilians as they could. The horrific evil inflicted on America that day was also a frontal assault on the very values that have made this nation a power-house: liberty, democracy, justice, and decency. To the nation's gun ban lobby, however, the mindless tragedy was seen as an opportunity to seize on terrorism as an excuse to launch a new wave of harsh gun laws against peaceable citizens. But their antidefense dogma fell on deaf ears. Citizens quickly decided to assume responsibility for their own protection. Homeland security meant exercising Second Amendment rights; it meant common-sense gun ownership. It meant Americans fighting back -- from airline pilots to average citizens. Guns, Freedom, and Terrorism exposes the myths of those who demand we give up the liberties our forefathers fought valiantly to protect. It's about the true meaning of an armed citizenry and the nation's bedrock belief in preserving freedom. This fact-filled book provides forceful and convincing arguments on all the current issues facing firearms ownership in America, including: arming airline pilots, "animal rights" extremists, extortion of firearms manufacturers, gun show prohibition, international disarmament, self-defense and right-to-carry laws, media bias, and the historical and legal foundations affirming an individual's right to keep and bear arms.
