    Well I hope you like it! Right now, I'm working on the sequel, set five years later. I hope I can write it in a year or so.

    Hi Matt,

    I can't find your book at Barnes and Noble (imagine that), so I am going to order it from you directly, makes more sense anyway.

    The guy at the store said why don't you get, How to Become a Queer, Abortion for Dummies, Moral Relativism, or The Government is Your Friend instead?

    Nope, it'll be a while before I'm on the shelves at B&N, that's for sure. For now, signed copies from me are your best bet, or Amazon or the other places linked on my website.

    I'm half way through it and it's spell binding! To be honest with you Matt, I was paranoid before I started reading this book. Now I'm 10 times more so!

    I can't wait to finish it.

    I just finished the book Matt. Loved it, especially the "Vince Foster" references.

    If you guys/gals haven't read this book yet I highly recommend doing so.

    Thanks Matt, can't wait for the next one.

    Az Gun Nut: Thanks! I tried to weave into the story lots of the old unresolved plots: Vince Foster, TWA 800, etc.

    While it's fresh in your mind, if you want to you can jot down a few words of review on my Amazon page.

    Thanks,

    Excellent Read

    Hi Matt,

    I just finished your book last night. Only one question: You done with part 2 yet?

    All kidding aside, it is a good book. I am not much into "Fiction" but once I read the first page of EFD I was hooked. Definitely the same type of read as UC. I love the factual information there.

    Good job!

    Hi Jeff,
    I'm sorry to report I'm nowhere near finished "Domestic Enemies." As I chase it, it seems to run away from me. Hopefully it'll be ready sometime in late 2005.

    Just purchased your book off of Life Liberty Etc. Also ordered a couple of shirts and sticker off the guy. Never been to the site and havent heard of it...

    It is so easy to spend your money when you are helping the cause.

    Drew,
    Thanks, I hope you enjoy it! BTW, I came up with the idea which lifelibertyetc.com used (with my blessing!) on stickers and shirts. The one with the "Naval Jack" Gadsden flag, with the M-16 rifle going the other way from the snake, forming an X.

    I was lucky with SAR. Now if I can only get the big name gun mags to review it!

    Incidentally, I'm well into writing the sequel "Domestic Enemies," which has an "Aztlan" Southwest theme. You can read the early chapters here on my website.

    You were not lucky at all Matt. You wrote a great book and all I did was tell people about it!

    Pleasure meeting you at SHOT I will anxiously be awaiting the sequel.

    Thanks Jeff, I appreciate it. Getting a terrific review in SAR is a big break for me, in my quest to become known as a gun writer.

    Fictional, of course. Up there with Stephen Hunter.

    Some day.

    Here's an Enemies Foreign and Domestic banner you can add to your sites. Let's support a fellow Second Amendment activist and help him spread the word.



    If you haven't ordered a copy, I'd recommend that you do so today. If you get it from Matt's site, he'll even autograph it for you.
    I am putting this banner on my site...and ordering my copy today...
