Of all the guns in the world owned by private citizens for non-military purposes, half are found in the United States of America. Their amount exceed the population of the country: 393 million guns for 372 million people.

It is not a coincidence, nor a marketing matter: it is rather a matter of tradition and constitutional guarantee. It is the story of the Second Amendment, ratified in 1791 to reassure the inhabitants of the new independent territories that their federal government will never be able to abuse its authority over them.

Two hundred and fifty years later, the Second Amendment is still rooted in all aspects of American life and this book frames its current state through what are seen as four fundamental American values: Family, Freedom, Passion, Style.
