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 is a Second Amendment warrior. Chapters alternate between her personal story of navigating a completely absurd bureaucratic maze to exercise an individual, fundamental right which "shall not be infringed," and a thorough analysis of the lies, ignorance, and distortion used by the left, the media, and the current administration to undermine your rights. Ms. Miller included several appendices and meticulously documented her work with references to primary sources which increases the value of this resource immensely. Ms. Miller's writing style is easy and entertaining, making for a rapid read without losing any of the substance.

Oh dear...shame about the breaking news that casts doubt upon the detailed background story that Emily felt justified getting that gun in the first place: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2015/03/03/additional-document-casts-doubt-on-home-invasion-of-local-fox-reporter/

So apparently she made this whole "home invasion" story up. Hilarious.

Format: Hardcover
Emily Miller is supposedly a "reporter", but she seems to prefer fiction to reality.

Washington Post has highlighted some disturbing allegations about how events in her book may have been fabricated. See "Additional document casts doubt on the home invasion of local Fox reporter"; also Gawker. From WaPo: "Emily Miller, the chief investigative reporter for WTTG-TV (Fox 5), didn't fall victim to a home invasion on New Yea's Day 2010 as she has told various interviewers in recent years, including some gun-rights lobbying groups." It looks like Miller MADE UP an absurd story about being accosted by 15 thugs, when the actual police report says this:

"But the 15-person-strong band of scruffies doesn't make the supplemental report's description: '[Miller] stated that she went into the house and felt that something was not right, so she exited the house to take a photo of [suspect's] vehicle. [Suspect] approached [Miller] and gave her a business card that stated [a tree service] and [suspect] left the scene. [Miller] stated that [suspect] was operating a silver pick up truck with landscaping on the side of it.'"

Miller must have really wanted to catch the bad guy(s), right? In fact, she ignored all police follow-up calls: "'Police attempted to contact Miller three times amid its investigation” on Feb. 3, 2010, Feb. 4 and Feb. 9. Three voicemail messages went unreturned. The undersigned made several attempts to contact the complainant which ended in negative results. The undersigned request that this report be suspended until additional means of contacting the complainant is provided, reads the [police] report.'"

No matter what side of the gun debate you are on, you need to read this book. It brings into sharp focus the problems with attempts at gun control. The criminals have no problems obtaining illegal firearms, but a law abiding citizen like Emily are made to jump through expensive hoops to obtain a gun.

Worse yet, when the need for self protection was immediate, the misguided laws put lengthy time delays into the equation.

Before purchasing/reading this, please read the following article from the Washington Post. It cast serious doubt on the validity of this entire book. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2015/03/03/additional-document-casts-doubt-on-home-invasion-of-local-fox-reporter/?tid=pm_opinions_pop

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Emily lives in Washington DC, a place with the worst violent crime in the country. They also have the most restrictive "gun control" in the country, which should give anyone brighter than a black hole a good clue as to how well "gun control" prevents crime. Only the criminals in DC are willing and able to carry guns, and use them on innocent people.

This lady suffered a frightening incident where she felt she was in serious danger. She decided to take personal responsibility for her own safety, and looked into buying a gun. What a nightmare! But she went the full course, jumped through all the hoops, paid large amounts of money and suffered long and petty insults to her intelligence, character and integrity to obtain "permission" to buy a common tool. She was and is totally "law abiding," even bending over backwards to be understanding and compliant.

So, after a very long time, she now has a gun in her home, just in case. While she is out on the mean streets, in a subway, shopping, at work or ANYWHERE else, she is as helpless as ever. She can't carry her gun in Washington DC.

Maybe she'll write another book if that changes, or if she moves to some place with a rational attitude toward those who refuse to be helpless victims.
