My Parents Open Carry, a book authored by founding members of Michigan Open Carry and Michigan Carry, has become a number one bestseller on Amazon.com proving once again that the true majority of Americans overwhelmingly oppose gun control despite earnest attempts by groups like Moms Demand Action to portray Americans as helpless hoplophobes in need of an ever-expanding nanny state.
The book's website explains:
"My Parents Open Carry was written in the hope of providing a basic overview of the right to keep and bear arms as well as the growing practice of the open carry of a handgun. We fear our children are being raised with a biased view of our constitution and especially in regards to the 2nd Amendment."
In contrast to the statist myth that people are afraid of guns, the authors express a very real and justified fear resulting from the literal "brainwashing campaign" by Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson and others to convince people that owning a gun is "...not cool, that it's not acceptable."
In a 1995 speech by Eric Holder that was aired on C-SPAN, the Obama regime's Attorney General deviously fantasized about devolving the American mind so that the natural right of self-defense would be as shameful as the self-detrimental habit of smoking. Holder explained: "over time, we changed the way that people thought about smoking, so now we have people who cower outside of buildings and kind of smoke in private and don’t want to admit it.”
Reflecting the true nature and traditions of American culture; the authors of My Parents Open Carry, Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, took it upon themselves to address a neglected need thereby working to protect the rights of all Americans, regardless of whether or not they support human rights in regards to self-defense.
"Before writing this, we looked for pro-gun children's books and couldn't find any. Our goal was to provide a wholesome family book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, i.e., that self-defense is a basic natural right and that firearms provide the most efficient means for that defense. We truly hope you will enjoy this book and read and discuss it with your children over and over again."
My Parents Open Carry is sold on Amazon.com for only $10.76 and is eligible for free shipping; evidence that the authors are motivated by a love for Liberty, not cashing in on the media frenzy surrounding the open carry issue. Bulk discounts are also available through the publisher, White Feather Press, LLC.
Even for families that are pro-gun, owning multiple copies of this important book is worth considering. While the book undoubtedly makes an excellent gift for nieces and nephews growing up in "progressive" households; too often parents passively assume that their values will be absorbed by their offspring instead of actively teaching the importance of, and reasons for, traditional values.
Today's children are increasingly likely to become adults that are diametrically opposed to the Renaissance ideals that propelled Western civilization to the heights of human development. This is of course due in large part to the concerted effort by Globalists like Eric Holder that have permeated every facet of civilization.
In 2008 Professor of Advanced Constitutional Law at Denver University, David Kopel, addressed this threat in a piece entitled The Human Right of Self-Defense.
"The United Nations Human Rights Council has declared that there is no human right to self-defense. Moreover, the Council has ordered all governments to enact very restrictive gun laws (more severe than those of Washington, D.C., or New York City, for example), and has declared that failure to enact such laws constitutes a human rights violation. Further, the HRC states that it is a human rights violation for a government to allow a person to use a firearm in self-defense against a rapist or other criminal who is not attempting homicide."
- David Kopel, The Human Right of Self Defense
Let that sink in for a moment...
The United Nations has declared that you have no right to self defense! To accept this edict means that even the provisional allowance of firearms use in order to prevent homicide is nothing more than a privilege granted by our self-appointed overlords! This 'privilege' would certainly be revoked should we allow the US State Department to fully implement Freedom From War, the 1961 plan for "General and Complete Disarmament".
This plan is publicly available on the Library of Congress website and reveals that the State Department has been working with the UN to render the world's population defenseless for more than half a century.
When John Kerry signed the infamous UN Arms Trade Treaty last year, the state media insisted that it was only a harmless piece non-binding, feel good philosophizing on the part of global orchestrators. However, that will change ninety days after the ATT has been ratified by 50 countries making it a binding and enforceable treaty. On June 4th of last year the UN gloated that eight more countries had signed on bringing the number to 40, only 10 short of the number necessary to begin disarmament of the world's population, forcibly if necessary.
The enemies of Freedom and Liberty are monolithic, tireless and unyielding. In contrast, the Liberty Movement has for too long stagnated; crippled by infighting, a lack of mutual support and laziness. We can no longer be contented by complaining and playing at armchair politics. We face a very real effort to literally enslave our own children that will succeed if we do not overcome our apathy, ignorance and laziness. For less than the cost of a fast-food meal one could purchase a copy of My Parents Open Carry and use it as a tool to strengthen mankind's defenses against tyranny.
Isn't that the least we could do?
