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 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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
