Nothing inspires pictures of the yank frontier and a pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps view of freedom and independence relatively like weapons. Gun Crusaders is an engaging inside of examine how the four-million member nationwide Rifle organization and its devoted contributors come to determine every gun keep an eye on chance as a step down the trail in the direction of gun confiscation, and at last socialism. Enlivened by way of a wealthy research of NRA fabrics, conferences, chief speeches, and exact in-depth interviews with NRA contributors, Gun Crusaders makes a speciality of how the NRA constructs and perceives threats to gun rights as another assault in a wide liberal cultural conflict. Scott Melzer indicates that the NRA promotes a nostalgic imaginative and prescient of frontier masculinity, wherein gun rights defenders are obvious as patriots and freedom opponents, protecting no longer the liberty of faith, however the faith of person rights and freedoms.
