by Alan Korwin with Attorney Michael P. Anthony
This book is hot! It takes all the guesswork out of federal
gun law, explaining clearly how the whole thing works. Covers
the hard-to-find "proper authorities" laws, the Militia,
the National Guard, citizens, dealers, importers, collectors,
global disarmament, explosives, laws that can take your rights
away and the laws to restore them too great laws, bad
laws, 70 pages of juicy intro material, the Lost National Right
to Carry... without a doubt this is the fundamental firearm
reference book. Don't be fooled by the partial set that
BATFE issues. They leave out the parts that control them, and
only provide some of the parts that affect you.
Unabridged all 271 federal gun laws are included, plus
thousands of words of "Statutes-at-Large," the unnumbered
"hidden" gun laws. And every law is described in detail,
in plain English.
America's gun laws are better than you might think
they protect and regulate the right of the people to keep and
bear arms for all lawful purposes, severely punish criminal
activity, and delineate the government's role. The gun laws
are such a mystery, basically, because very few people have
ever seen them all.
- It's like a firearms-law library at your fingertips.
- The plain-English parts make everything so easy.
- It's actually fun to readbrowse it and you'll
- Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

SAMPLE ENTRY FROM "Gun Laws of America"
10 USC § 4309.
Rifle ranges: availability for use by members
The Gist: Any rifle range built at least partially by federal
money may be used by the military and the public. Regulations
for use are written by whoever controls the range, fees may
be charged, and the military has first call on use of the range.
This is one of the few sections to survive the 1996 repeals
of the Civilian Marksmanship provisions. The repealed sections
have been changed somewhat and are now under Title 36 of the
(a) Ranges available.All rifle ranges constructed in whole
or in part with funds provided by the United States may be used
by members of the armed forces and by persons capable of bearing
(b) Military ranges.
(1) In the case of a rifle range referred to in subsection (a)
that is located on a military installation, the Secretary concerned
may establish reasonable fees for the use by civilians of that
rifle range to cover the material and supply costs incurred
by the armed forces to make that rifle range available to civilians.
(2) Fees collected pursuant to paragraph (1) in connection with
the use of a rifle range shall be credited to the appropriation
available for the operation and maintenance of that rifle range
and shall be available for the operation and maintenance of
that rifle range.
(3) Use of a rifle range referred to in paragraph (1) by civilians
may not interfere with the use of the range by members of the
(c) Regulations.Regulations to carry out this section
with respect to a rifle range shall be prescribed, subject to
the approval of the Secretary concerned, by the authorities
controlling the rifle range.

Hot Spots in Federal Gun
||Complete chart of the growth in Federal Gun Laws.
||State Laws and the lost National Right to Carry.
||Just how many groups are exempt from firearms laws? Here's
the complete federal list with cross-references.
||One of the surprising conclusions from all the research:
The gun laws are generally excellent.
||The legal numbering system is designed to bamboozle! Demystify
the whole thing in a few light-hearted pages. Find out what
"§" is and how to write one.
||The entire hierarchical structure of federal law in a
chart, from the Constitution to subparagraph (A)(i)(I).
||So what exactly is the Militia? It's described by law
-- and it's definitely not private musters of rural citizens.
||The longest gun law on the books, 8,084 words
||One law -- the Lautenberg amendment -- conflicts with
eight Constitutional guarantees.
||Posse Comitatus. It's in the headlines -- should the Army
enforce civilian law? See what the law says.
||Feds can wiretap for gun crimes -- plus 2-1/2 pages of
other things right down to criminal mischief -- and they
want more. See if you think they could use more.
||It may come as a surprise, but, world peace and global
disarmament is the official policy of the United States.
||Isn't the Militia the National Guard? See what the National
Guard actually is and decide for yourself.
||Official federal policy is to teach firearms safety to
youngsters and adults.
||The worst English syntax on the books (my opinion).
||Arm the pilots: It's actually deputize the pilots, and
arm the deputies.
||How will caliber bans affect the general
