    That's ridiculous! You can only shoot yourself in the leg if your gun is pointed there AND you pull the trigger.

    Paul Barrett
    Author, GLOCK: The Rise of America's Gun

    In the reviews on Amazon there are several readers who noticed a very strong "anti-gun" bias in the book. Could you please comment on on those reviews? If there is some "left-wing, pro gun control" bias in the book, then it really does not interest me. I can get that from the news.

    Could you please elaborate on it?

    Do you support civilian ownership of magazines that exceed 10 rounds?
    Do you support any new gun control laws on a federal or state level? If so, what are they?
    Do you support a so called "assault weapons ban" in any way shape or form?
    Do you support any additional or current laws that restrict people from defending themselves, like repealing/restricting castle doctrine, stand your ground, high capacity mag posession, etc.?

    Thank you.
