If you want to gain a visceral appreciation for what Obama was up against this week with the gun legislation, read this book. Patterson nails it and it will blow your mind how complicated and corrupt America's gun mentality is and consequently how difficult it will be to ever change.

This book is over 1,000 pages and I read it in two days. Patterson gives us an insider's view into U.S. politics in this stunning page-turner. I love novels that teach you something but equally shows you both sides of burning issues.

This will scare you - once you realize who is really running North America.

If you like liberals bashing the second amendment, you will love this book. Anything and everything is blamed on gun makers and owners. No one is else is made to face personal responsibility.
