Everyone says that by carrying a gun daily, you're preparing yourself for the worst day of your life. I agree with the sentiment, but that's still better than your unprepared family burying you because you weren't ready!

With that said, are there any books that you guys would consider "required reading" for gun owners? I've pretty much read everything that Massad Ayoob has written, and I think everyone should read these two:

http://amzn.to/1QRO4HT - In the Gravest Extreme - THE Authoritative text on firearms in a self defense situation. Unfortunately, not available in e-book, but it's still worth a buy and a read.

http://amzn.to/1QRNj1E - Deadly Force: Understanding Your Rights to Self Defense - Adds on to In the Gravest Extreme and talks about some of the more recent high-profile cases. Also a must have, in my opinion. This one is available in or a physical copy.

http://amzn.to/1M3Qphw - Aftermath: Lessons in Self Defense

http://amzn.to/1TnZXeP - The Founders' Second Amendment

Can you guys think of anything else that should be mandatory reading for gun owners?

Edit: Updated with links to the books that others are recommending.

I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6. :thumbsup: A really old saying made up by survivors.
True even in Canada.
What ever the law can do to you life is worth it.
If you're still alive you did the right thing.

You have to have resolve, aforethought, when the time comes. If you

have military service, you should be OK with it.

Just consider that before your assailant or BG attacked you, he had options.

He could have volunteered to help the homeless. He could have undertaken

an apprenticeship. He could have gone to the local library, and learned a new

job skill. He could have applied to a local office for food stamps. He could have helped a

relative move to Indiana.

These are only a few options of which this person could have taken advantage. He

decided, instead, to take the easy way out, track down, stalk, and victimize YOU.

If you are lucky, or aware, enough to gain an advantage, it may be folly to hesitate...

Hmmmm "Mandatory" reading~~~How about the constitution.
As a Canadian I know for a fact that a lot of states wipes their feet on that paper one girl from another site is a crossing guard for kids and the "CITY" prevents employees to carry on the job. I'd have to go back there to tell you the state she's in and her name but she's real and so is her problem and the disregard for constitutional rights
