Today, the right to own a gun is under assault like never before. Every time a firearm is used in a high-profile crime, calls for stricter gun regulation—even outright prohibition—are pounded into us by a press that has taken sides. In fact, when it comes to guns, journalists have clearly made up their minds. According to a recent study, television news stories calling for stricter gun laws outnumbered newscasts opposing such laws by a ratio of ten to one. In other words, we are hearing only one side of the story.

This is the other side.

"A blockbuster book every freedom-loving American should read." — Christopher Ruddy, editor, NewsMax.com

In The Seven Myths of Gun Control, award-winning journalist and bestselling author Richard Poe cuts through the blizzard of anti-gun propaganda and uncovers the truth about guns, crime, and freedom. He details the seven most common arguments used by gun prohibitionists, debunking each one with a wealth of statistical and legal data gleaned from top experts in the field of guns and gun rights. You will discover that, contrary to myth, the availability of guns leads to less crime, not more; that guns do not pose a special threat to our children; and that the Second Amendment is as vital to the lives and liberty of modern Americans as it was in frontier times. You will also learn how the current drive to further regulate and even outlaw firearms is a point-blank assault not only on truth but on freedom as well.

Provocative, accessible, and persuasive, The Seven Myths of Gun Control is a thoughtful and invaluable contribution to the national debate about guns.

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.

From the Back Cover:

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
