The War On Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies

While attacks on the Second Amendment are all too common in today’s politically charged climate, advocates fighting for our right to self-defense and the right to bear arms now have a powerful new tool in The War On Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies, the latest book by John R. Lott Jr. Roughly two-thirds of the book is centered on analytic proof and commentary that gives backbone to Lott’s thesis that a concerted campaign is being waged by politicians and bureaucrats with gun-control agendas.

The author provides a detailed, chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the many lies and obfuscations pushed by influential anti-gun figures. Lott corroborates contradictory data from various sources, including analyses and studies he has (in full disclosure) conducted himself.

Whatever the specific issue, readers will be able to find a relevant chapter to enhance their understanding of what’s really at stake. The most chilling of his conclusions is that an obvious collaboration between factions in government, media and academia is attempting to control public discourse by distorting facts to meet expected outcomes.

Lott has accomplished the difficult task of collecting, analyzing and disseminating hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces of research to give advocates hard numbers to present in discourse. As such, readers might find it challenging to pore through such a wealth of data, though the text is articulately written. Lott peppers the chapters with tables and line graphs to better illustrate where the information is genuine and where data clearly do not support the Left’s assertions. It is a heroic effort to show that good guys with guns do make a difference while also condemning those who purposely mislead or misdirect people seeking the truth.
