"Brian Anse Patrick's new book deftly explores the emerging cadre of ‘concealed carry license’gunowners, an active, non-traditional group including women and minorities, who are shaping politics, often through alternative media."
—Peggy Tartaro, Executive Editor, Women & Guns
"Gun control can be analyzed from many perspectives: law; criminology; politics; philosophy. Brian Anse Patrick's splendid new book on the movement to allow concealed carry covers all these perspectives, plus one more: he documents how 40 states adopted right to carry laws over the fervent opposition of the news media and political elites. This occurred through a brand new phenomenon—millions of people communicating and organizing over the Internet. This book is a magnificent achievement."—Don B. Kates, author of Armed: New Perspectives on Gun Control
