It’s funny how guns even the playing field. There was a very brief time during my university years when I dreamed of a gun-free society, but then I read this book. When a bunch of Harvard Law professors rave about a book asking us to re-think gun control I take notice. This book is filled with eye-opening statistics and is thoroughly readable at the same time. I dare you to read this book! And we all love a good dare, don’t we?

      1. There was a time, seems a lifetime ago, I had many cuss words on my hip and used them at my disposal.

      2. Me too. I have a few choice ones I’ve never been able to rid myself of–not sure if I want to anyway! They hit the spot in fits of anger. haha

    Love the Louise Brooks photo, and the one of Laura Bullion is so intriguing. I’d actually never heard of her, so thanks for the intro.

    1. Me too. Frida looks very sexy though my husband disagrees. 🙂 I think I like the little girl best–reminds me of childhood living with cops. What’s your favorite?

      Hope you had a nice holiday.
