    Pro-gunner - Read this book. Understand how far we have fallen from the founders' wishes and get to work.
    Anti-gunner - you say you have an open mind? Prove it! Read this
    book and find fault with the logic...if you can.

    "Emily Gets Her Gun" is a very well researched book about gun control across the nation and major players such as Obama and Bloomberg. I was expecting a story. A story that, for the most part, I had already read in the Washington Times. I was very wrong. It is not just about DC. Emily has cleaned it, polished it, and parsed it in a manner that fills in and completes the national story in a manner that I now realize was not available to her in her daily column. It is fresh in a way that I did not expect. The icing on the cake is the notes section. I have heard gun owners and anti-gunners
    alike say many things that they 'knew' but could not provide an informational source. Emily has extensive notes that give dates and web links located toward the back of the book so they do not get in the way of the reader and yet still are available for the thinker, researcher, and curiosity seeker.

    Emily Miller has done a fantastic job of letting us know what certain people want for not just Washington D.C., but for the whole country. I have also been reading Gun Control in the Third Reich. The sad thing is the same strategies Emily discusses to discourage firearms use today in this country are the same strategies discussed in the that book. It is absolutely frightful.
    The media helped Nazi Germany take away the rights of Jews then and the main stream media is doing it again here in America. A teacher in the so called middle of the road on gun control told me just last week that it could never happen here, I beg to differ. There is no middle ground on gun control, you are either all in for the second amendment or you are against it. It really is that simple. Ms. Miller is a beacon of hope and warning. Thanks Emily!

    A good account of the path to gun ownership in D.C.

    Emily Miller talks about the difficulties in exercising her 2nd Amendment rights while living in Washington, D.C. and talks about gun rights in general. She also documents a few cases of prosecution in D.C. of people who had technical violations of the district's strict gun laws while not endangering anyone. The fact that D.C. cops are instructed that empty cartridge cases can be treated as an illegal, unregistered firearms is eye-opening, and I already had a negative view of D.C.'s treatment of gun rights.

    She does a pretty good job of presenting a fair evaluation of the issues surrounding gun rights, and has a compelling writing style.

    Excellent book! Well written and well researched. No over-the-top bias, just plain facts presented in a way that makes it a good read. I highly recommend this book no matter where you stand on the gun issue.

    A great read--Highly recommended

    I found the book very informative on how our government wants things to work as far as gun control is concerned. If you are interested in seeing liberals at work, this is the one for you. So glad I live in South Carolina!

    I feel this book was exceptional. One of the things it points out is the need for National Guns laws versus this state to state crap. It also points out how convoluted the Democrats and the gun grabbers try and make things when they really don't have to be that way. Whether you are Pro gun as I am or anti-gun or Pro Obama or anti Obama this book is an education based upon real life and facts.

    I read this book thinking I may find some argument for the NRAs no prisoner mentality.
    But sadly I found a book written for and by the paranoid part of society that has rewritten history and what the amendment means. 
    The distortion of truth is appalling and putting forth this illusion of us vs them only further divides our country.

    A must read for the pro second amendment supporters. Emily states facts, not bias info like the media and Bloomburg wants you to believe. Also a good read for the anti second amendment crowd so you can see true statistics that the media avoids and realize how important the second amendment really is
