One of the best-kept secrets in America is how often and how effectively ordinary citizens defend themselves with firearms against criminal attack or criminal threat. Criminology professor Gary Kleck of Florida State University estimates that each year about 2.5 million ordinary people in the United States use firearms in confrontations with criminals. In the most cases, a shot is not fired and the incident is not reported to police. Along with the bias of the mainstream media against portraying guns in a positive light, this results in these incidents occurring below the public's radar. The second edition of this comprehensive look at self-defense with firearms lifts the veil by recounting some of these incidents, from warding off a burglar in the home to coming to the aid of a police officer in jeopardy. Each incident is put into context with other self-defense actions and features descriptions of ordinary citizens to determine why they did what they did. The stories are rounded out by suggestions, often from the participants themselves, about what they might have done differently. The book has been updated with several newer and more timely stories.

Bis zum Jahr 2015 wurde Deutschland als ein relativ sicheres Land mit stetig sinkender Gewaltkriminalität angesehen. Laut der Polizeilichen Kriminalstatistik aus dem Jahr 2016 änderte sich dieser Trend. Mord und Totschlag stiegen um mehr als 14 Prozent gegenüber dem Vorjahr. Vergewaltigungen und sexuelle Nötigungen stiegen um fast 13 Prozent, und bei gefährlicher und schwerer Körperverletzung verzeichnete man ein Plus von knapp zehn Prozent. Die Polizei hat keine Verpflichtung, für die Bürger den Bodyguard zu spielen. Die Polizei wird ihnen in einer Notsituation selbstverständlich helfen, wenn sie es kann. Wenn sie es aber nicht kann, weil sie nicht direkt am Ort des Geschehens ist, dann ist es persönliches Pech. Einen Schadensersatz wegen Nichterfüllung des Schutzauftrages können Bürger von der Polizei nicht verlangen, weil es so einen individuellen Schutzauftrag gar nicht gibt. Für Ihre Sicherheit sind in erste Linie Sie selbst verantwortlich. Um aber für Ihre Sicherheit sorgen zu können, müssen Sie entsprechend ausgebildet und ausgerüstet werden. Dabei erweisen sich Pistolen, Revolver, Gewehre und Flinten als die effektivsten Verteidigungsmittel, weil es leicht zu bedienende Distanzwaffen sind. Es gibt Bücher über Waffentechnik oder Waffengeschichte. Dieses Buch ist anders. Es beschäftigt sich mit dem Thema Ihrer persönlichen Sicherheit. Dabei werden viele Fälle aus dem wahren Leben vorgestellt, in denen Menschen unverschuldet in eine gefährliche Situation geraten sind und sich mit Hilfe ihrer Schusswaffen gegen die Angreifer erfolgreich wehren konnten.

Americans have a deeply ambivalent relationship to guns. The United States leads all nations in rates of private gun ownership, yet stories of gun tragedies frequent the news, spurring calls for tighter gun regulations. The debate tends to be acrimonious and is frequently misinformed and illogical. The central question is the extent to which federal or state governments should regulate gun ownership and use in the interest of public safety. In this volume, David DeGrazia and Lester Hunt examine this policy question primarily from the standpoint of ethics: What would morally defensible gun policy in the United States look like? Hunt's contribution argues that the U.S. Constitution is right to frame the right to possess a firearm as a fundamental human right. The right to arms is in this way like the right to free speech. More precisely, it is like the right to own and possess a cell phone or an internet connection. A government that banned such weapons would be violating the right of citizens to protect themselves. This is a function that governments do not perform: warding off attacks is not the same thing as punishing perpetrators after an attack has happened. Self-protection is a function that citizens must carry out themselves, either by taking passive steps (such as better locks on one's doors) or active ones (such as acquiring a gun and learning to use it safely and effectively). DeGrazia's contribution features a discussion of the Supreme Court cases asserting a constitutional right to bear arms, an analysis of moral rights, and a critique of the strongest arguments for a moral right to private gun ownership. He follows with both a consequentialist case and a rights-based case for moderately extensive gun control, before discussing gun politics and advancing policy suggestions. In debating this important topic, the authors elevate the quality of discussion from the levels that usually prevail in the public arena. DeGrazia and Hunt work in the discipline of academic philosophy, which prizes intellectual honesty, respect for opposing views, command of relevant facts, and rigorous reasoning. They bring the advantages of philosophical analysis to this highly-charged issue in the service of illuminating the strongest possible cases for and against (relatively extensive) gun regulations and whatever common ground may exist between these positions.

As cultural, social, political, and historical objects, guns are rich with complex and contested significance. What guns mean, why they matter, and what policies should be undertaken to regulate guns remain issues of vigorous scholarly and public debate. Gun Studies offers fresh research and original perspectives on the contentious issue of firearms in public life. Comprising global, interdisciplinary contributions, this insightful volume examines difficult and timely questions through the lens of: Social practice Marketing and commerce Critical theory Political conflict Public policy Criminology Questions explored include the evolution of American gun culture from recreation to self-protection; the changing dynamics of the pro-gun and pro-regulation movements; the deeply personal role of guns as sources of both injury and security; and the relationship between gun-wielding individuals, the state, and social order in the United States and abroad. In addition to introducing new research, Gun Studies presents reflections by senior scholars on what has been learned over the decades and how gun-related research has influenced public policy and everyday conversations. Offering provocative and often intimate perspectives on how guns influence individuals, social structures, and the state in both dramatic and nuanced ways, Gun Studies will appeal to students and researchers interested in fields such as sociology, political science, legal history, criminology, criminal justice, social policy, armaments industries, and violent crime. It will also appeal to policy makers and all others interested in and concerned about the use of guns.
