I downloaded this with an open mind. I'm a far-left progressive, and I really like reading good arguments from opposing viewpoints because it helps me further define my own beliefs. This, unfortunately, is not one of those arguments.

In his introduction, he claims he "joined an online email list" as the "token liberal" -- which makes me wonder if his "conversion" story is really true. His first thought was "gays should get guns" when Mathew Sheppard was killed? This is not a progressive person; in all likelihood, he was a latent conservative. He thinks Mathew Sheppard, if he had had a gun, could have successfully blown away his three assailants. This is an unsupported claim that continues throughout the book.

He begins the first chapter with another false assumption: there is more anti-gun than pro-gun propaganda in American society. But the NRA is the most influential lobbying group in the United States! Of course when you pick up a left-leaning newspaper you're going to find gun control articles. That isn't an argument. Pro-gun people are far from silenced.

"When Governor Cuomo screams like Hitler and people applaud him" is another choice phrase from this book, which already fails in its already tenuous logic by invoking Hitler (see Godwin's Law).

He also equates gun ownership to being free, and those without guns being slaves. Let that sink in.

His other anecdotes talk about a man in a wheelchair shooting at an intruder... WHO THEN SHOOTS BACK. Of course, the intruder missed anything vital and struck his hand, so it's a success story. All guns do is escalate a situation, not protect or diffuse.

Just don't waste your time with this nonsense. This is the equivalent of a high school current issues paper, complete with misspelling, strange copy-paste text from websites, and image macros of the kind you'd find from your annoying conservative friends on Facebook.

This book provided a perspective that I hadn’t considered before with regards to the 2nd amendment. It contains some interesting facts and brought about some real examples of how having a gun had saved lives: like the old man in the wheelchair whose house was broken into by an intruder with a gun and the 92 year old farmer who did something similar. I also enjoyed the statistical parts of the book as well as the different sections specifically geared towards different groups and races.

The chapter I appreciated the most is the one about women, seeing as I am usually home with a child most of the time and I know that protecting her is my 100% responsibility and cannot be depending on anyone else in case of a break-in, which is not uncommon in a big city where I reside.

I actually grabbed a copy of Selling the Second Amendment to use as a resource for a paper I had for my 400 level class.

The facts pertaining to the 2nd amendment are quite interesting and not to mention the thought patterns that certain ethnicity groups seem to adapt. I'm not sure if I agree with the 2nd amendment, but I do sure know that with the fighting army of those that stand behind it 100%, it's gonna be difficult for the government to overturn the right they have to the exact American people that to this day love it to death and will fight for it.

So no the book isn't all about recruiting others (or selling them on this right) to fight the good fight as much as it is understanding this ongoing battle in its entirety.

I absolutely love this book, especially the story about the man in the wheelchair defending his home with a gun. I myself in a wheelchair, and a gun would be my only line of defense. If you are on the fence about gun control, you need to read this book.

I'm from New York City but I don't live there anymore. I wanted to understand why are other Americans so obsessed with guns, so I picked up this book thinking I would have a laugh at the paranoid rantings of another right-winger, but boy was I wrong. Smith's perspective is different from anything I have read. I thought the police could keep us safe, how wrong I was! Did they keep safe that Central Park jogger that got raped by those hoodlums? Did they keep Mathew Sheppard safe? I've learned that only individuals with guns can keep themselves safe! Thanks for the education, Mr. Smith.
