The title is more that a little misleading. President Obama signed into law two pieces of legislation that can only be interpreted as "pro-gun": allowing the people to take loaded firearms into National Parks and allowing Amtrac passengers to carry firearms in their baggage. It's true the President tried to pass more significant firearms legislation, but it was mostly symbolic; a deadlocked Congress made that a foregone conclusion. Stating categorically in your title that Obama wanted to take all guns away from Americans is a sad example of pro-gun propaganda and sloppy research.

The two Canadian friends should then be happy they don't live here. We, at least, are very glad they don't.

Other developed countries just shake their heads. For those Americans who feel that they need to carry a hand gun to be/feel safe, great, just don't pretend you live in a developed country.

A very insightful book that documents Ms Miller's successful attempt to untie the bureaucratic Gordian knot that is known as the Washington DC gun laws to procure a firearm for self protection after experiencing a truly frightening event. Her personal experience vividly illustrates the axiom, "When you take away our guns, only the bad guys will have guns." as DC currently has a gun death rate second only to Chicago where gun laws are just as restrictive for law-abiding people.Between her attempts to procure a firearm, she interviews many high-placed people, both pro and anti-gun. Highly recommend this book for anyone who believes in the 2nd amendment.
