If you haven't heard about My Parents Open Carry or thought the book was snark or a bit of satire, alas, I must tell you; it's a real thing available at site and no doubt a book store or Walmart near you. Glad to know this is a self-published book and the likelihood of it showing up in a brick and mortar store is slim or none.
Thanks for the rec list. We needed a laugh with all the grim news this week. Sat Aug 09, at 8: I can't believe this diary is still going. site now has 27 pages of reviews on this book.
Last I checked Barnes and Noble had none. Some gun owners have noticed the reviews and are in there trying to salvage the savaging. I often said no topic should be taboo in kids' books. Here's a standout review: After saying our prayers to Jesus and Charlton Heston, I sat on the edge of my kids bed to read them this book, when I shifted my position and accidentally set off my 9mil that was strapped to my hip, shooting myself in the thigh.
This wouldn't have been so bad, flesh wounds happen, other than the fact that I hit an artery and started spurting blood all over my kids Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin sheets. Jeffs seems to be tuning out the outrage. When asked his opinion on statistics about gun-related fatalities and injuries in the U. In addition, a recent study from the Yale School Of Medicine says guns kill or hospitalize 10, American children each year.

After reading this, I would answer that question with a confident Fuck No. Because as a book, as a narrative, it's shit. Allow me to quote the opening of the book. Keep in mind, this is meant to be a book for children. You know, young humans who are interested in action and situations they can relate to?
The Strong family live in a modest home in a medium-sized town in the Midwest. Off to a good start. I really appreciate the use of words like "consists" and "modest", two of my favorite words as a child that are still quite useful today.
This is a simple story of an economically unremarkable family that is made up of multiple individual units. The Strong Parents- okay, let's stop.
Strong family? Is that really the best name they could come up with for a fake family? How about the Armstrong family, or maybe the Gunsters? Although I just realized that Richard Strong may have been known as Dick Strong in his college days, so maybe I'm cool with this now. Dick Strong has a bunch of run-ins with people where he basically reads the constitution out loud to them, and then the Strongs surprise their daughter.
They're driving towards a gun range, but they've been there a million times.
What kind of surprise is that? The dumbest of the dumbs will be shocked and amused when Brenna gets her own gun.
Oh, and I feel obligated to mention that the art is also horrific. This is probably my favorite picture, Mr. Strong appearing to give his daughter the old Dick Strong Strong Arm, which is the name he invented for putting his hand on his daughter's butt in a calming, yet molesty fashion.
Now, before we get into the ridiculousness of the politics here, I would like to talk about some factual errors in the book OUTSIDE of the gun politics. This may just be a continuity error, but it is the obligation of this reader to point out that canned spinach is third place behind fresh and frozen frozen foods generally being frozen almost immediately, at which point their composition is arrested, whereas canned still goes through a lot of travel and processing first.
So I guess now we have to talk a bit about the politics. In the interest of full disclosure, just so you know what an idiot you're dealing with here, I'll let everyone in on my gun opinions. They're fun.
Like driving a car really fast or smashing something, shooting a gun can be pretty fun. Also like driving a car really fast, I think it's an activity that belongs in a controlled environment. And the fun of it fades quickly the moment someone is seriously hurt. My opinion on Open Carry laws that permit a person to wear a gun on a holster, in the open is that it's for scared people.
They may say that they are exercising a right or contributing to public safety, but deep down I think every one of those people is just plain scared. This book supposedly has a story, but what it really consists of see, I can use those flourish-y, flower-y writer words too! In
