During the Los Angeles riots, hundreds of law-abiding citizens were able to take up arms against lawless mobs to defend themselves, their families, their homes, and their businesses. They did the job police simply could not do. Lives were saved. Robberies were prevented. Homes and businesses were defended and left intact - all thanks to our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
But despite the lessons of the L.A. riots, despite the fact that millions of Americans use firearms every year to prevent violent crime, and despite the clear intent of our Founding Fathers, there are those in America who believe you do not have the right to own a gun.
In Guns, Crime, and Freedom, Wayne LaPierre tells the true story.
Until now, there has been no single source for Americans - gun owners and those who don't own guns but are still interested in the debate over gun control - to find the available facts surrounding the gun control argument. Guns, Crime, and Freedom has all the facts. It explores the issues of gun control, crime, and the Second Amendment, and provides documented evidence and telling statements about the agenda of those who want to ban guns.
LaPierre vigorously challenges the media and their claim that private gun ownership is the cause of the spiraling crime rate that has made American streets and communities unsafe. He explains - with detailed facts - how the freedom guaranteed in our Constitution is called into question when legislation is proposed to ban guns and impose waiting periods and limitations on gun purchases.
At a time when crime rates are soaring, when the "revolving door" criminal justice system turns convicts loose to murder, rob, and rape again, and when police seem helpless to protect innocent citizens, it is urgent, says Guns, Crime, and Freedom, that our right of self-defense not be put in jeopardy.

Review: Guns, Crime, and Freedom

User Review  - Vicki - Goodreads

Written during the Clinton administration when the term "Assault Weapon" became the favorite label of gun control freaks for all "scary" looking guns. They haven't given up on taking American citzens right to arm themselves against an oppressive, totalitarian government and they never will. Read full review
