H. L. Richardson

In this era of ever-growing, more distant, unresponsive government—and politicians of both parties who do not walk their talk—retired California State Senator H. L. (Bill) Richardson’s book is a strong tonic. He warns; however, his words are not for the faint of heart: as Finley Peter Dunne once said, “Politics ain’t beanbag.” He spells out in a series of lessons how his often-hard-pressed conservative minority was able to win victory after victory on issues like the death penalty, gun control, and removing liberal judges. “The central theme of this book is the methodology both sides use. Being ‘right’ is not enough,” he cautions.
H. L. “Bill” Richardson is a twenty-two-year veteran of the California State Senate. Most of those years were served in leadership. Six times he received Legislator of the Year awards from Christian and Sportsman organizations. Richardson has focused his extensive political career on the preservation and protection of Second Amendment rights. He is Founder and Chairman of the Board of Gun Owners of California and Gun Owners of America. Membership in these organizations exceeds 200,000. His book Confrontational Politics is used by organizations and individuals as a textbook on how to defeat the Left.
An active hunter and outdoorsman, Richardson remains involved in state and national politics, and is a popular speaker. He continues to provide a colorful media commentary on a host of issues. He has written for numerous national publications, and is the author of two successful humorous political books, Slightly to the Right and What Makes you Think We Read the Bills? The latter is used as a textbook in political science classes throughout California. H. L. Richardson and his wife, Barbara, have three children and seven grandchildren and reside in the Sacramento area.
