Larry Correia’s book, “In Defense of the 2nd Amendment,” provides a powerful and accessible explanation of the positive role firearms play in our lives. It explains why good guys with guns are a critical layer of defense and why the 2nd Amendment was adopted. The book argues that you are your own first line of defense in critical situations and that firearms make this defense possible.
Correia explains that those who want to ban guns do not necessarily hate guns themselves. Often, proponents of eliminating the 2nd amendment hate the freedom that guns make possible in the face of continuous attempts by elites to exercise near-unlimited power over the lives of average people. Guns, if available and used properly, are the best check against bad actors, whether they be criminals or tyrants.
