By Wayne LaPierre
WND Digital Edition
The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights guarantees your right to keep and bear arms. You have a right to own a gun for defense of family and home. You have a right to own a gun for hunting, shooting or collecting. You have the right to own a gun to break the chains of tyranny. Our Founding Fathers said it. Our Constitution guarantees it. Our courts affirm it. Our laws protect it. Yet there are politicians, bureaucrats and members of the media elite who want to trample our freedoms. They say we can't be trusted to own a firearm. They say our freedoms are the cause of crime. They say that the government has the right to determine whether we need to own a gun. They say there is no human right to self-defense. They portray law-abiding gun owners as the members of some lunatic fringe. They attack us in the press and call us second-class citizens. This indispensable book contains battle-tested arguments and an arsenal of facts, figures and anecdotes that freedom advocates can use every day.
