This book is not simply a pro-2nd Amendment tome. It's a well thought out presentation on how many Americans have come to accept misrepresentations, apathy, various forms of delinquency, abuse of power and factual distortions as commonplace.
Mr. Heston pulls no punches in describing his disdain for elitist powers-that-be who cannot accept debate on their ideas, and who are quick to label those who disagree with them, or worse yet, challenge them - as racist, closed-minded, unenlightened, zealots, or even dangerous. Yet these same people and groups claim to be the compassionate, all-encompassing champions of diversity and tolerance.
Best of all, this book outlines a plan on how each of us can become involved in our communities and increase our awareness of how our elected officials are operating, from our local school board level to monitoring and communicating with our members of congress in Washington, D.C.
It is a plain spoken, eye-opening book that should be required reading for everyone who still believes in liberty, the Bill of Rights, and maintaining the traditions and institutions that made and kept the USA a great country for generations. A perfect graduation gift for every high school or college graduate. I was a new parent when I first got it, and it reinforced my commitment and confirmed my belief that if we want our kids to turn out to be responsible, sensible adults, we have to teach them by example.
Thank you Charlton Heston, for your inspiration and diligent example of what it means to be a true patriot.
Even when it wasn't popular for him to do so, I admire that Charlton has been unafraid to stand for his core values. For exmaple, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. marched on our nation's capital to give his "I Have A Dream" speech, Charlton organized a small group of move stars to join him in the march. This was at a time when minority rights were not important to the Hollywood elite and it brought him criticism. When Charlton died in 2008, we lost a fine actor, and even more importantly, a tireless foot soldier in the fight for liberty. I highly recommend this inspiring book.
