A few years from now
Guns are still everyday killers. Ordinary people have no defense—except in Oregon, where reforms have self-defense on the rise and guns that kill on the decline.
But gun advocates fear losing their rights. Oath Keeper Hank Soldado, Army veteran and ex-cop, is a good guy with a gun. He sees it as his duty to stop the gun-reform leader.
Going undercover to get close to his target, he’s drawn to the man’s vision for a new way to turn America’s murderous gun impasse into self-defense, security, and safety.
Then treachery strikes to destroy that vision, and Hank becomes the only one who can save it—but he has to turn his back on lifelong beliefs about his right to his guns.
In today’s America there is no hope of preventing those killings. Dealing with gun violence is mired in a cultural logjam—as things are, nothing will change.
But what if gun makers could make billions because owning lethal firearms meant prison? They’d make it happen.
And what if we had a way to defend ourselves without using lethal firearms? We’d make it happen.
