The history of the American gun is intricately entwined with the history of America itself. Promising developments in gun technology could change not only America's future, but the future of the world. Unfortunately, the radical anti-gun lobby is standing between innovation and the American people. Bestselling author Frank Miniter details the amazing breakthroughs waiting to happen in gun technology that could make today's firearms exponentially safer and smarter-if the anti-gun lobby weren't halting progress in its tracks.
Frank Miniter is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide and The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Hunting. A frequent commentator on radio and television, he is a field editor for American Hunter (an NRA magazine)and a contributor to Forbes. Miniter is also the ultimate man. He has run with the bulls of Pamplona, snowshoed the Klondike, hunted Russian bear in Kaleria, and has survived everywhere from the Amazon to the streets of Manhattan. He lives in New York.
If you want to know what role guns are likely to play in the United States in this century, you’re certainly not going to get any kind of unbiased or accurate answer from general news sources. Frank Miniter, who has been writing about guns for his entire career, fills the void with his new book. Want to see what’s coming? Here is about as good a look at the future of firearms as you are likely to get.”

Guns are demonized, idolized, politicized, and mostly misunderstood. With a clear voice, a reporter’s curiosity, and a polemist’s agenda, Frank Miniter explores the technology, politics, and influence of guns in America. His look ahead at the next generation of guns and how they will shape public policy is especially fascinating.”
ANDREW McKEAN, editor in chief, Outdoor Life
The Future of the Gun is an insightful look into gun politics and policy, written with
Frank’s trademark wit. An important read for every American.”
CHRIS W. COX, chief lobbyist, National Rifle Association
I first met Frank at the Supreme Court covering the Heller case. From his work there, I knew he was a top-notch reporter, and he shows his writing chops in The Future of the Gun. He offers an informed, yet highly readable look into our future. And he’s done it all in under three hundred pages.”
