In September 1993, as the Second Amendment stood on the brink of disaster, our book, Things You Can Do to Protect Your Gun Rights was published. The gun rights movement, having fought a defensive, holding action in Washington since 1988, was under the greatest attack in history. Within a few months , the Brady Bill passed. As we expected, the passage of this reasonable law did not lead the anti-gun movement to moderate its demands; to the contrary, the anti-rights movement rolled out an even more ambitious agenda for choking the Second Amendment, and the media plunged into the greatest anti-gun feeding frenzy in American history. As with our first book, we hope that this book proves useful not just to Second Amendment activists, but to anyone who is fighting the good fight for freedom, humankind's oldest and noblest cause.

The tide is turning against environmentalism as the political right, industry and governments fight back. Green Backlash is a controversial expose of the anti-environmental movement. Tracing the rise of the backlash from the Wise Use movement in the USA, the author reveals its rapid spread worldwide: the anti-roads movement in the UK, forestry debates in Canada and Australia, marine resource issues in Europe, South-East Asia, and controversies such as the Brent Spar. The backlash is set to get worse as the resource wars intensify. This book offers a greater understanding of the challenges and threats facing global environmentalism, concluding that the environmental movement now has a chance to re-evaluate and change for the better to beat the backlash - a chance that must not be missed.

Did you know that every 13 seconds one of America's 70 million gun owners uses a firearm in defense against a criminal? That American women use handguns 416 times a day in defense against rapists, which is a dozen times more often than rapists use a gun? That a gun kept in the home for protection is 216 times as likely to be used in defense against a criminal than it is to cause the death of an innocent victim in that household? These are just a few of the surprises this book has in store for anyone whose belief in gun control is based on TV news or popular magazines. Award-winning novelist, screenwriter, and journalist, J. Neil Schulman, challenges the misinformation that pundits ranging from network anchors to ill-informed doctors are promoting about guns. Especially for the reader who doesn't own a gun and has never even considered buying one, Stopping Power should be an eye-opener.

My purpose and hope in writing this book about Handguns, Concealed Carry, and Legal Concerns is to impart to you knowledge to save you money. An even more important goal is to save you potenti al heartache; and most critical, to encourage you to protect your life and that of your loved ones. "Why and how," you ask? First, The Need: The FBI reported, "In 2010 there was a burglary every 15 seconds." One in fi ve women in a recent survey stated they had been a victi m of sexual assault. When resisting a criminal assault, an armed woman has a 400% better chance of escaping unharmed than an unarmed woman. Question: What's your plan? Just trust in Blind Luck? The Why: To purchase an inappropriate hand gun or two can cost hundreds of dollars. To run afoul of the law- that expense begins in the thousands of dollars. To be unarmed and unprepared to confront a violent att acker-that cost is incalculable. Remember: "Lightning and violence have one thing in common-they both strike somewhere." The How: There is no other single source, one volume book covering handguns, ammuniti on, holsters, maintenance, safes, safety, legal concerns, and miscreant misbehavior. This book is an effort to fill that void. If you are not certain that you need to know more, open the book to page IX and take a quick assessment of your knowledge. Thank you for giving me a look, and don't forget: "You make your choice and you take your chances."

What lies behind our 200-year-old fascination with firearms and our ambivalence toward gun control? Our gun laws are among the weakest in the developed world, and any attempt to regulate gun ownership is met with formidable resistance. Guns in American Society provides a comprehensive, unbiased look at the controversial issue of guns and gun violence in the United States. In the only major reference on the subject that is not decidedly pro- or anti-gun, the 82 expert contributors probe such complex topics as: Is there a ling between weak gun control and high gun violence? Is todayʼs gun violence inevitable given our violent history? Does gun violence in the media cause violent behavior? Does the Second Amendment make strict gun control nearly impossible? Aside form brief intervals in the wake of tragedy, do Americans really want gun control? Guns in American Society gets beyond the emotionally charged rhetoric and partisan politics surrounding gun issues to make a clear-eyed examination of the facts about firearms and their impact on American society. With more than 500 entries and 4 data-rich appendixes, it is an essential information source for anyone thinking about guns, no matter where they stand on the issues.
