From Publishers Weekly:

Relating her own and others' experiences as victims of crime, the former anti-gun lobbyist argues that Mace and karate are ineffective protection and discusses the ethics of using weapons, how children can be kept safe from guns owned in the home, which gun to buy and the gun laws of each state. PW called this a "disturbing, controversial book."
