Everyone agrees that this country has a problem with crime. Many criminals use guns to commit crimes, but the most effective counter to them is enforcement of the laws already in existence. New laws restricting guns will only disarm the law-abiding population. Wayne LaPierre makes this case in the mid-1990s, hence his many references to the Clinton Adminstration, Waco and Ruby Ridge.
In fact, opposition to gun control is only a fraction of the mission of the NRA. In addition, the NRA promotes

After having many discussions with family and friends about the treachery of the Gov't and the gun-haters, Wayne put it all into perspective and backed it up with serious references of proof. This book was so well written, I am amazed that I only came across it this year. The deception of the anti-gun, anti-freedom mongers out there should be completely ashamed of themselves.

Written during the Clinton administration when the term "Assault Weapon" became the favorite label of gun control freaks for all "scary" looking guns. They haven't given up on taking American citzens right to arm themselves against an oppressive, totalitarian government and they never will.
While the book is a bit dated now, it still provides a great deal of history on our Second Amendment and helps explain the importance of a well armed society. It also provides some great talking points to use if you are confronted with some misguided fool who supports gun control.

I feel this book gathered into one place a lot of pertinent information that any constitutionalist should know regarding the attempts of our leaders to remove or dilute our God-given rights to protect ourselves, and our property.
I'm a second-admendment sympathist myself so take my words with a grain of salt, especially if you are a gun control sympathist, but I thought it is a great discussion on why the second admendment is still valid today.
