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.

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...”
