Renowned firearms and self-defense expert Massad Ayoob has written a new book entitled “Deadly Force: Understanding Your Right to Self Defense,” which is designed to teach the responsible gun owner about the legal, ethical and practical use of firearms for self defense.

With over three decades of experience testifying in weapons and homicide cases, Ayoob is a wealth of knowledge. As the press release notes, he takes the reader through a number of timely, relevant topics, including a debunking of various self-defense myths, a detailed analysis of the Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground Laws, concealed carry tips and advice, information on how to handle yourself if forced to use a firearm in self defense, and a look at high-profile cases like State of Florida v. George Zimmerman and State of Arizona v. Larry Hickey. Simply put, this book is a great starting point if you want to get informed about using firearms for self defense.

“Just as Ayoob’s landmark book, ‘In the Gravest Extreme‘, quickly became the standard for educating countless thousands of armed citizens when he penned it three decades ago, Deadly Force keeps the most important facets of gun ownership top of mind for today’s realities,” the press release reads.

Print and e-book copies of “Deadly Force: Understanding Your Right to Self Defense” are available at, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other major and specialty booksellers.
