Champions the Second Amendment's right for all law-abiding American citizens & sharply criticizes gun-control laws as aiding & abetting in the acts of criminals. Foreword by Charleton Heston. 6x9 inches, 308 pgs.
Best-selling author Wayne LaPierre, the executive director of the National Rifle Association, explains why the right to bear arms is so critical to our democratic and free society. LaPierre & Baker (head of the NRA's legislative arm) champion the Second Amendment right of all law-abiding American citizens and sharply criticize gun-control laws as aiding and abetting in the acts of criminals. They expose how the media consistently distort the facts about gun ownership in America, and how they refuse to report on the role that responsible gun ownership plays in protecting our families and our communities. Shooting Straight is a must-read for all gun-owners and lovers of freedom.
