Yes, “My Parents Open Carry” really does exist.
It is a children’s book. It was co-written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew (of Open Carry Michigan) and it is a best-seller on Amazon (in Children’s Education and Reference Books on Government). The book’s authors wrote it because, I quote, “We fear our children are being raised with a biased view of our constitution and especially in regards to the 2nd Amendment. Before writing this, we looked for pro-gun children’s books and couldn’t find any.”
This book fills that hole.
The plot summary, from MyParentsOpenCarry.com, states that you can “Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together. What’s not so typical is that Brenna’s parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense. The Strongs join a growing number of families that are standing up for their 2nd Amendment rights by open carrying and bringing gun ownership out of the closet and into the mainstream.”
Thank heavens! I frequently lament how closeted gun owners are, and how I seldom hear from them. “You know who I wish we got to listen to more often?” everyone whispers and murmurs. “Gun rights advocates. Especially I wish they addressed the kids more.”
But what about our other constitutional rights?
You think there aren’t enough children’s books advocating the Second Amendment? You should see how few children’s books there are about the Third Amendment!
Clearly, there is a niche that needs to be filled.
Inspired by the runaway success of “My Parents Open Carry” (“Every person should buy 5 copies of this book,” raved James Towle, host of the American Trigger Sports network), here are some new Constitution-centered children’s books I’m working on. Let me know if you want to preorder a copy — OR SIX! (I’m not going to settle for just five.)
