Biographical Information and Blurbs for Guy Smith

Guy Smith is a writer, songwriter and political provocateur. At times Smith has been a cowboy, surfer, computer guru and a marketing strategist. Throughout he has been committed to dressing down politicians in the process. “Once elected, you’re my employee and whipping boy.”

The Gun Facts e-book was originally a personal crib sheet a collection of notes about gun control, criminology, constitutional law and related topics. Smith began sharing his notes with others in the late 1990’s and discovered that most people faced the same problem: there was a mountain of real information that was unknown to the public. 

Since inception, the Gun Facts e-book (no longer in production) was downloaded into more than 165 countries (it was estimated that each major edition had a viral spread of over one million copies). Gun Facts has been cited in testimony before state public safety commissions and has been cited in a number of books including extensive coverage in Armed Response by David Kenik.

Smith contributes Op/Ed pieces to major metropolitan newspapers (San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Tribune). He has published over 150 magazine articles and has published or is working on both fiction and non-fiction books.
