Dr. Paul Gallant received his Bachelor of Science from Brooklyn College, City University of New York, with a major in Chemistry. He then earned an M.A. in Chemistry from Brooklyn College. He received a Doctor of Optometry degree (O.D.) from the State University of New York, College of Optometry, in 1976. Between 1978 and 2009, Paul has been engaged in the private practice of optometry in Rockland County, New York. He relocated to Long Island in the summer of 2009, where he resumed his practice.

Paul and Joanne met in 1994 and shortly thereafter, they began co-authoring newspaper and magazine articles on firearms policy. Among their early research was one of the first anonymous gun-owner surveys, designed to measure the true social and political attitudes of gun-owners.  Joanne and Paul became affiliated with the Independence Institute, Golden, CO, in 2000 where they are Senior Fellows. In recent years, Paul and Joanne have often co-authored articles with David B. Kopel, the Research Director of the Independence Institute, and more recently with Alan Chwick & Sherry Gallant.

The topics of their writing include biographical essays of persons such as First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Civil War General Ambrose Burnside, and painter Leonardo da Vinci, as well as analyses of various social and political issues.

The leading topic of their research, however, is analysis of the social and political effects of firearms and of firearms laws around the world. Among the countries Paul and Joanne have written about are Albania, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina,  Bougainville, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, DR Congo, Croatia, East Timor, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Kenya, Macedonia, Mali, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Serbia, Sri Lanka, the Solomon Islands, South Africa, the Sudan, Tajikistan, Uganda, United Kingdom, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Their writings have appeared in the Brown Journal of World Affairs, Texas Review of Law & Politics, UMKC Law Review, Engage, Notre Dame Law Review, Journal of Law, Economics & Policy, Jindal Global Law Review, Journal of Firearms & Public Policy, National Review Online, Tech Central Station, Reason Online, The Blue Press, and Chronicles. They are contributors to the award-winning academic encyclopedia, Guns in American Society: An Encyclopedia of History, Politics, Culture, and the Law (2002, the American Library Association Booklist Editors choice 03, with updated entries to the 2010 Encyclopedia 2nd edition revision), and to The Day that Changed Everything: The Impact of 9/11 and the New Legal Landscape (2009, Palgrave McMillan Publ., Matthew Morgan, ed.).

Their current primary focus of international research is the prevention of genocide, and of human rights abuse. Doctors Gallant & Eisen are members of the International Association of Genocide Scholars.
