"Unintended Consequences" by John Ross
I picked up a copy of this at the local Savers thrift shop here in Austin and just got around to starting it early this week. It was written in 1996 and is all about the gun culture in America. The deeper I got into it the more I realized that the real theme is all about the gradual oppression of our individual liberties by the Federal government. There are a lot of technical gun terms here that you have to wade through but it's really a riveting story about what might happen here if people are pushed too far.
I Googled John Ross and this book seems to be a cult favorite regularly among the top sellers on Amazon. It's not usually available in retail book stores but is sold mainly on Amazon and at gun shows. It seems to be in high demand as a Wikipedia survey taken in 2009 shows regular sales of new copies at $120 each, used at $50 with publishers having difficulty keeping it in stock. Looks like I got a good deal for $3!
Give it a try - I think you will be surprised at how good it is. Ultra liberals, stay away from this one. It will raise your blood pressure.
