Knowing where states draw the line between your rights and the rights of those who seek to harm you, your family or your property could be the most important knowledge of your lifetime.

A history of America's Stand Your Ground gun laws, from Reconstruction to Trayvon Martin In the aftermath of the 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, conservative legislators and school administrators shocked some observers when they proposed armed "public school patrols" to protect children. Yet this kind of "DIY security" activism predates the contemporary gun rights movement. As Caroline Light proves, support for "good guys with guns" relies on the entrenched belief that certain "bad guys with guns" threaten us all. Stand Your Ground explores the development of the American right to "self-defense," and reveals how the "duty to retreat" from threat was transformed into a selective right to kill. In her rigorous genealogy, Light traces white America's attachment to racialized, lethal self-defense, from the original "castle laws" to the radicalization of the NRA. A convincing treatise on the United States' deadly ascension as the world's first Stand Your Ground nation, Light shows how violent self-defense has been legalized for the most privileged and made the most marginalized more vulnerable.

When it comes to the gun control debate, there are two kinds of data: data that's accurate, and data that left-wing billionaires, politicians, and media want you to believe is accurate. In The War on Guns, economist and gun rights advocate John Lott turns a skeptical eye to well-funded anti-gun studies and stories that perpetuate false statistics to frighten Americans into giving up their guns.
Our right to keep and bear arms has been infringed. We live in a world where ISIS followers publicly behead Christians and common murderers kill the innocent out of anger, for fun, or for a few dollars. America's law-abiding citizens depend upon firearms to defend against these real life monsters. Yet, Americans are disarmed every day by our own government when we engage in common, necessary behaviors such as traveling across state lines or going to work. Gun owners who are caught violating these restrictive gun laws are criminalized by our justice system and jailed. It has been my experience as both a prosecutor and a civil law attorney that too many responsible gun owners unintentionally violate gun laws they don't even know exist. Seemingly innocent behavior is turned criminal by our legal system. Continuing to carry with an expired permit or giving a gun to a family member can land an unsuspecting gun owner with a criminal conviction, jail time, probation, fines, and loss of your right to possess a firearm.Our state and federal governments have created so many laws restricting the possession and transfer of firearms that gun owners, attorneys, and judges are left confused. Infringed helps you understand the gun laws and empowers you with the necessary knowledge to stay safe, legal, and alive.
