Unintended Consequences by John Ross –
This is by far the best book I’ve read…ever. I swear. This book not only outlines the plight of anyone who believes in their right to keep and bear arms (enumerated by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution), but shows how the BATF (aka “ATF”, aka “Bureau of American Tyranny and Fascism”) literally entraps people into breaking the law. This agency is NOT about “upholding the law,” nor do they “investigate crimes.” This agency is all about CREATING crimes and then enFORCEing them.
They don’t show up to your house during the day with a warrant, knock on the door, and serve that warrant. Nor do they arrive at your home, shout that they have a warrant, and then barge in (e.g. DEA-style) from all sides. Nope. They wait until you’re gone, then they storm your house (usually using local cops and FBI agents as their fodder) and take everything there. They then find you, wherever you may be, and arrest you in public where you have the least chance of fighting back. They aren’t stupid. The BATF knows that their “enemies” are armed and dangerous. Nevermind it’s our RIGHT to be armed and dangerous in order to FIGHT BACK against this kind of tyranny!
Anyway, this book centers around a man who grew up BEFORE significant gun law had been enacted. He became a part of the “gun culture.” The book nicely outlines gun control laws, in a chronological manner, and how they affected those who were a part of the “gun culture.” Eventually things come to a head after a great interlude by a rookie agent attempting to bait Henry (the main character) into an illegal proposition at a gun show.
The best thing about this book is that it MUST have the powers that be worried. After all, it outlines a clear and simple way for a relatively non-violent revolution to take place…
I highly suggest you read this book! I don’t care who you are! If you’re an agent of the government, you’d better read it as a matter of self-defense so you’ll know what could be coming. If you’re an average Joe on the street, read this book so that you know what CAN be done to make change really happen. GET THIS BOOK!
Conveniently, I’ve included a link to it at Amazon.com. I’d suggest going there NOW.
Remember: after the first one, the rest are free…
