A single book might not change the world. But this utterly original meditation on art and war might transform the way you see the world—and that makes all the difference. “How to live in the face of so much suffering? What difference can one person make in this beautiful, imperfect, and imperiled world?” Through a dazzling combination of memoir, history, reporting, visual culture, literature, and theology, Sarah Sentilles offers an impassioned defense of life lived by peace and principle. It is a literary collage with an urgent hope at its core: that art might offer tools for remaking the world. In Draw Your Weapons, Sentilles tells the true stories of Howard, a conscientious objector during World War II, and Miles, a former prison guard at Abu Ghraib, and in the process she challenges conventional thinking about how war is waged, witnessed, and resisted. The pacifist and the soldier both create art in response to war: Howard builds a violin; Miles paints portraits of detainees. With echoes of Susan Sontag and Maggie Nelson, Sentilles investigates images of violence from the era of slavery to the drone age. In doing so, she wrestles with some of our most profound questions: What does it take to inspire compassion? What impact can one person have? How should we respond to violence when it feels like it can’t be stopped? Praise for Draw Your Weapons “A collage of death, savagery, torture, and trauma across generations and continents, Sarah Sentilles’s Draw Your Weapons is painful to read, hard to put down, and impossible to forget.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “In her dynamic, impressionistic (and cleverly titled) book, Sentilles focuses on language and images–particularly photography–and considers what role they play in peace and war. Eschewing a traditional narrative, Sentilles focuses on two men–one a World War II conscience objector who makes violins, and the other an Abu Ghraib prison guard who paints detainee portraits. In brief, delicately layered pieces rather than a narrative, Sentilles has created a collage that explores art, violence, and what it means to live a principled life.”—The National Book Review “It’s the kind of book that, after reading just half, you have to stop and catch your breath, because reading it changes you, not just in terms of what you know–it changes the way you think and how you feel–so much so that, halfway in, I wanted to go back and start again because I felt I was already a different person to the person I was when I began.”—Turnaround

My purpose and hope in writing this book about Handguns, Concealed Carry, and Legal Concerns is to impart to you knowledge to save you money. An even more important goal is to save you potenti al heartache; and most critical, to encourage you to protect your life and that of your loved ones. "Why and how," you ask? First, The Need: The FBI reported, "In 2010 there was a burglary every 15 seconds." One in fi ve women in a recent survey stated they had been a victi m of sexual assault. When resisting a criminal assault, an armed woman has a 400% better chance of escaping unharmed than an unarmed woman. Question: What's your plan? Just trust in Blind Luck? The Why: To purchase an inappropriate hand gun or two can cost hundreds of dollars. To run afoul of the law- that expense begins in the thousands of dollars. To be unarmed and unprepared to confront a violent att acker-that cost is incalculable. Remember: "Lightning and violence have one thing in common-they both strike somewhere." The How: There is no other single source, one volume book covering handguns, ammuniti on, holsters, maintenance, safes, safety, legal concerns, and miscreant misbehavior. This book is an effort to fill that void. If you are not certain that you need to know more, open the book to page IX and take a quick assessment of your knowledge. Thank you for giving me a look, and don't forget: "You make your choice and you take your chances."
