Books about Gun Control

#1

Post by locke_n_load » Mon Feb 19, 2018 10:04 pm

I consider myself pretty educated on history and gun control, but can I get some suggestions for books about gun control and it's progression to tyranny in history? I want to be able to debate the consequences of gun control and have as many facts (not just statistics) on my side.
I currently am starting "gun control in the third reich" but if there is something that encompasses different time periods and different countries, that would be preferred to continue with. Thanks.

It won't tell you about gun control, but if you want to read what our founding fathers thought about the second amendment, get a copy of The Second Amendment Primer. It's even available on Kindle.

It's fiction but with a great deal of historical content and accurate facts about NFA etc. so it's a good read, if you can find a copy, of Unintended Consequences by John Ross.

:iagree:

Search the internet for Unintended Consequences John Ross PDF. The ebook version was made free by the author years ago, that’s how I got and read it last year.

If you can’t find a working link, PM me and I will email you the file (3.8mb)

Wow, I was not aware of that. I have the actual book but much prefer reading on my Kindle, especially when it's such a large book. Thanks!

Well, I've tried two formats and it will not email to my Kindle. Do you know what the secret is to get the file into the Kindle?
