The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Thanks for advertising this. I just ordered a copy of Kyle Cassidy's book.
Sold. I'll be getting this. There are plenty of people I know who can benefit from such perspective.
It might make for an interesting read for a hoplophobe. Since just about everybody I know owns a gun or ten, I don't think I need a copy.
But I do like the commentor who owns "an old flintlock from the Spanish American war". That level of misinformation makes me think the guy writes novels for a living!
Misinformation? Sounds like the author of that tidbit slept through history, or didn't take anything more than the required survey courses.
It sounds like someone might have confused "Spanish American war" with the Mexican War. Flintlocks were already on the way out, but as late as the Civil War, the Confederacy was still sending troops into battle with them. At the Battle of Fishing Creek (in which my great-great-great-grandfather participated), it was raining--with predictable results on reliability!
Next time I meet you, Clayton, I'll have another book for you to sign.
