A book written in 1995 by John Ross is a historical odyssey, about the history of gun control law in the United States, and it’s effect on the common citizen. It weaves this tale by showing how most of the Twentieth Century was spent abrogating our rights. The book is populated by both fictional and historical characters, making a blend of storytelling that is riveting.
There is sex. The book did have to sell.
I was brought back to the book by a blog post saying a link was available to download it FREE! Alas, the link does not seem to exist, anymore. And Amazon lists the book from around $100.00 to over $500.00.
Back-in-the day, I borrowed a friend’s copy, then mutual friends asked if they could borrow it. I obtained permission from the owner, and they did. And it became damaged! So, being persons of good faith, they ordered replacement copies, one each for my friend and for me! Direct from the author, autographed! I’m lucky enough to still have mine.
It IS a fairy tale. Having been published in the middle of the Clinton administration, many of the ideas brought forth to revert back to pre-gun control days were only that. Fairy tales.
But, we have come far, in spite of the continued assault on our rights by every administration since!
If you have a copy, read it again, just for the sheer joy of seeing some things in fiction having actually come true.PS – The image on the dust cover is a jack-booted-thug assaulting Justice. Neither the publisher or John Ross receive anything from me FTC – begone! PPS – Courtesy of Rev. Paul, here is a correct link! Thanks! Unintended Consequences pdf
