About The Author
Firearms Attorney, Bryan L. Ciyou
Bryan L. Ciyou is a trial and appellate attorney at the Indianapolis law firm of Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. He earned his BA with distinction and graduated through the honors program, along with his JD, cum laude, at Indiana University. One of his key practice areas is firearms law where he represents a wide array of clients, including licensed manufacturers and dealers with criminal or regulatory/compliance matters, gun show promoters and businesses with firearms legal issues, and individuals involved in deadly force encounters.
Mr. Ciyou has authored three books on Indiana and federal firearms law -- the Indiana Firearms Law Reference Manual and seven editions of the annual reference manual, Gun Laws By State. The latter compiles the tens of thousands of gun laws and driving concepts and simplifies this complex interaction of local, state, and federal gun laws that bind citizens and law enforcement officers who carry firearms off duty in other states. He also recently completed a chapter in the book, Inside the Minds: Strategies for Defending Firearms Offense Charges, published by Thomson Reuters, one of America's largest legal publishers, structured to assist America's practicing criminal defense and other attorneys working in this area of law. Mr. Ciyou is actively involved in shooting sports and has trained at some of the country's best facilities, such as Gunsite, under the tutelage of renowned instructors.
Why I Wrote Gun Laws By State
This book came out of me, really growing up with guns. I had continued the interest through law school and when I went to work as a lawyer, I was the "go to" guy for police officers and judges and still am when they get their own questions. I'll get the call and usually can find an answer to the most esoteric of gun questions. After working on three books in Indiana and spending nearly a decade on the topic, I decided with the background knowledge I had, I could make a real contribution by writing Gun Laws by State, to provide the average citizen with the right to transport a gun between states or carry in another state with reciprocal licensing. It's interesting though, that this book comes out a time when the perception of violent crime is at an all time high yet actual violent crime is at an all time low and has been dropping precipitously since the 70's. I am proud to say that Gun Laws by State, may be the thing I can do in the gun industry and for the 2nd amendment to make America continue to be the freest, greatest nation on earth.
