Description

The first book from a new author comes a thought provoking story, set upon the backdrop of true events that offers and explores an idea to a major, modern day problem. All across America, mass shootings and massacres constantly inundate the news faster than they are finished being mourned. As debates and a waging war over gun control intensifies, a man's resolve culminates as he faces conviction of a crime in one of the most publicly covered and well known trials in years. This ordinary man full of unordinary ideas finds a middle ground, a solution to the gun violence, in the creation of the Civilian Protection Association of America. Much like a neighborhood watch, but extending far beyond a single community, the CPAA helps give civilians and innocents back the peace of mind that was taken from them as members act as extra eyes and ears to the police. Lightly armed, these members increase the chances of someone being in the right place at the right time to help defend against another unpredictable attack. Citizens deserve the right to be able to protect themselves, their friends and family, and their way of life. While this man's goals are righteous, his means are described as controversial. Just a bit over a year after its initial start, disaster strikes this once optimistic plan. Can the man who started it all, who now stands on trial facing the end of the CPAA prove his innocence or has his judgment been clouded and blinded him to the truth?show more

About Jon R

http: //www.jonrauthor.com/ Take Back Home is the author's first book with hopefully more to come. Writing was always a large part of him, even if he didn't realize it until relatively recently, whether it's on various online forums, excelling at school writing assignments or creating stories for his animated work in college. His creativity stems from a life with an artistic background. Much like anyone else, he wishes for the world to be more civilized and enjoyable for all. He's full of ideas and loves to improve things, and (un)fortunately the world has plenty wrong to offer. He has always been a problem solver and loves doing it thus the urge to defend what's right and bring reason has lead him to writing. With this he aspires to contribute some good to the world in order to help make it a better place. If there is one thing he hopes for people to take away from his work is to learn to keep an open mind.show more
