In the heated debates over gun control, it's sometimes hard for a person unfamiliar with guns to separate fact from fiction. Emotion and politics can distort the issue, leaving many wondering where the truth lies. "Knowing Guns" is an attempt to combat the massive disinformation, misinformation and outright lies swirling around the issue while, at the same time, providing non-partisan answers to the questions that often arise. Both fans of gun control and gun rights activists can all come away knowing far more about the political shenanigans taking place on both sides and, armed with this knowledge, find common ground to mutual advantage. Written for the average person without heavy jargon, fully footnoted and annotated, the book begins with an introduction to the author, Stu Chisholm; a unique individual who is both a part of, yet apart from, what we think of American "gun culture." From the bedrock of the issue, the Second Amendment, right on through to the final ethical and moral considerations of gun use and ownership, Stu provides a guided tour, with a running commentary of all the hot button issues and current events. In short, a must read for anyone interested in firearms and their politics for whatever reason.

Mobile DJ, business owner/entrepreneur and author Stu Chisholm was born in Detroit, Michigan. A columnist for the DJ industry trade magazine, Mobile Beat, Stu's series on "DJ Security" contained a controversial segment on concealed carry and the use of guns. It was later included in, and expanded upon, in his book, "The Complete Disc Jockey," published in 2008. Running a business and pursuing what he considers logical security measures, Stu obtained his CCW permit in the state of Michigan in the late '90s and later became active in the gun rights movement. He joined the grass roots group MCRGO, the Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners, helping to reform Michigan's concealed carry law in 2001. Stu remains an active DJ, writer and activist, and is currently collaborating on an upcoming science-fiction book set in Detroit's near future. He is married to cable television producer, Janette Chisholm and lives in Roseville, Michigan.
