Stopping Power:
Why 70 Million Americans Own Guns

J. Neil Schulman

"Mr. Schulman's book is the most cogent explanation of the gun issue I have yet read. He presents the assault on the Second Amendment in frighteningly clear terms. Even the extremists who would ban firearms will learn from his lucid prose."
--Charlton Heston

"He has truly helped change my mind on guns and self-defense."
--Dennis Prager, The Dennis Prager Show


Did you know that every 13 seconds one of America's 70 million gun owners uses a firearm in defense against a criminal? That American women use handguns 416 times a day in defense against rapists, which is a dozen times more often than rapists use a gun? That a gun kept in the home for protection is 216 times as likely to be used in defense against a criminal than it is to cause the death of an innocent victim in that household?

These are just a few of the surprises this book has in store for anyone whose belief in gun control is based on TV news or popular magazines.

Award-winning novelist, screenwriter, and journalist, J. Neil Schulman, challenges the misinformation that pundits ranging from network anchors to ill-informed doctors are promoting about guns.

Especially for the reader who doesn't own a gun and has never even considered buying one, Stopping Power should be an eye-opener.


Praise for
Why 70 Million Americans Own Guns

Three stars from the Los Angeles Daily News!
"A thought-provoking and refreshingly broad discussion of issues that too often receive shallow treatment in mass media reports about gun-control proposals...Readers who haven't staked out a position on either side of the gun debate will find this volume provides some eye-popping reasons to evaluate or reconsider the assertions they hear on the topic."
--Mike Comeaux, Los Angeles Daily News

"Schulman's reasoning powers are superb, and he uses them to cut through the bunk that clouds the issue."
--Aid & Abet Police Newsletter

"The most delightful thing about this book--besides the frequent humor and often hilarious sarcasm--is the utterly unapologetic attitude Schulman takes toward the right to keep and bear arms."
--Alan Bock, Orange County Register

"Much of value in the book, especially Mr. Schulman's incisive critiques of the factoids, misleading rhetoric, and outright lies of the anti-gun lobby."
--Jacob Sullum, National Review

"His research is impeccable. Nobody expresses the other side better."
--Michael Jackson, KABC Radio
