In a long-awaited update of the world’s most authoritative work on the subject, Massad Ayoob draws from an additional three decades of experience to educate responsible firearms owners about the legal, ethical, and practical use of firearms in self defense-the armed citizens’ rules of engagement. Deadly Force discusses:

  • Understand the legal and ethical issues surrounding use of lethal force by private citizens
  • Learn about the social and psychological issues surrounding use of lethal force in defense of self or others
  • Preparation and mitigation–steps the responsible armed citizen can/should take

“After forty years as a practicing criminal defense attorney, I know that what Mas says, teaches, and writes is the best, state-of-the-art knowledge you can get.” ~Jeff Weiner, Former President, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers


This is an extremely informative book that all gun owners should have in their libraries.  It is organized well by topic so it is easy to reference.  It is best to be prepared for any situation and the authors fully explore your options if you are involved in a situation where you have to use deadly force in self-defense.  This book covers a lot of ground from purchasing the right gun for you to what to do if you had to use your weapon.  It will help debunk the myths surrounding deadly force and lays out your responsibility as a gun owner.  This book is a good first step in knowing your rights and responsibilities.
