A healthier self-rule.
As a former Los Angeles Paramedic, Author and Columnist John Longenecker saw his share of gun shot wounds and wondered why the Paramedics weren't seeing self-defense shootings in equal numbers. What he found in his work experience allowed him to create a whole new paradigm for reaching the non-gun owner electorate: the role of the ubiquitous armed citizen in every century.
This new perspective, according to Longenecker, is also the path back to smaller government in the 21st century.
"John Longenecker understands the true first responders are the ones on scene as emergent threats are happening, and to deny them the tools to respond appropriately only benefits those intent on doing harm." — David Codrea, Second Amendment Author and Host of the NBC talkradio show War on Guns.
".. Many victims of daily violence in our communities could avoid severe injury, mayhem or death if they or another citizen had the capacity to intervene with a firearm to stop the violence. CPR saves lives every day. Guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens saves lives every day." — Captain Eugene McCarthy, Los Angeles County Fire Department (ret)
How has gun control brought us to bigger government? How does the second amendment bring us smaller government and non-violently? Why not let the professionals handle it?
The final argument against gun control is Chapter Six, ‘The CPR Corollary'. Longenecker answers all of these exquisitely.
