5.0 out of 5 stars "Not part of the flock", January 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Assault on Weapons: The Campaign to Eliminate Your Guns (Paperback)
"America is at a crossroads, and we must decide whether we are a nation of men or a nation of sheep. Gun owners have already made that decision, and have concluded that in a world of sheep, they are not part of the flock." Assault on Weapons goes on to show, chapter by chapter, the history of and reasons behind the gun banning movement.

Here are some other quotes from the book, which will demonstrate the types of ideas to be found in this book:

"Firearms owners are the only remaining social group in America against whom it is perfectly acceptable to practice social bigotry, often to the extreme."

Thomas Jefferson: "When the Government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the Government, there is tyranny."
VS.
Representative Henry Waxman: "If someone is so fearful that, that they're going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, makes me very nervous that these people have these weapons at all!"

Assault on Weapons goes on to explain in detail, the tactics used by gun banners, and tactics to combat them. This final quote is another illustration of the points made by the authors: their definition of gun prohibitionists:

"what they want is the `perfect' society on their terms, by their definition. It would be a society without challenge and without risk, where rugged individualism may be an unpleasant memory, and self-determination a trait to be avoided so as to not upset an orderly community.

Perhaps it would be good even for those who think they are against gun ownership to read this.
