8 LaPierre, Wayne. Guns, Crime, and Freedom. Foreword by Tom Clancy.
Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, Inc., [1994]. 
Octavo, red boards (hardcover), xvi, 263 pp. Fine (As New), in a Near-Fine dust jacket with slight edgewear. “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...”

From dust jacket: Among the animal creation man stands out as a marksman. Weaker and slower than many animals, man established a special position for himself by devising a means of killing his meat or defending himself at a distance -- a superiority which over millions of years he has increased with the invention of one missile weapon after another. Here Charles Chenevix Trench, historian, soldier, and sportsman, follows up his best-selling History of Horsemanship with a wide-ranging survey of amn the marksman and his weapons, in peace and in war. He considers primitive weapons, the stones of Homer's Iliad and the throwing sticks of Australian aborigines, slings and javelins. He describes the development of the bow from its invention in prehistoric times (in every continent except Australasia) through its mediaeval heyday on the fields of Crecy and Agincourt to Queen Elizabeth's skill with the crossbow and Victorian ladies' toxophily... 64 colour plates and 205 in black and white complement the wealth of historical and technical information offered by the text of this magificent book.
