    Thumbs up Book: Enemies Foreign and Domestic, by Matt Bracken

    Enemies Foreign and Domestic
    Reviewed by "cookie"

    While randomly surfing the general discussion forum of another gun board, I came upon the review of a book entitled Enemies Foreign and Domestic, by Matthew Bracken. The review was written by none other than John Ross, the author of Unintended Consequences. Yes, that got my attention.

    I'll readily admit that I only skimmed the review, but I got the basic idea: John Ross liked it. That was good enough for me. OK, so where do I get it? Had I read the entire thread the first time, I would've realized that the author's web site was listed at the end. I didn't, so my next step was to purchase a copy from Amazon.

    The book arrived a few days later, and I started on it that night. The prologue described the U.S. government's reaction to an act of domestic terrorism. The terrorist act consisted of a shooter firing an old SKS rifle over a thousand yards, dropping rounds into an open football stadium. This caused a panicked stampede by the fans, resulting in over one thousand deaths. The police quickly located and killed the shooter - a little too quickly in the eyes of some. In a knee-jerk response, Congress passed legislation banning "assault weapons", and required those in private hands to be turned in for destruction.

    Corrupt elements within federal law enforcement seized this opportunity to encroach upon the rights of law-abiding Americans, and to settle old scores. Checkpoints reminiscent of the Soviet Union became commonplace. Military vehicles patrolled the highways. Suspected domestic terrorists were rounded up, and gun clubs were painted as seditionist militias. A small group of patriotic Americans - comprising victims of federal law enforcement's draconian measures - decided to fight back.

    This book serves to educate, and to warn. It is a harbinger of the results of oppressive government. It also acts as a reminder. There are still a few among us who believe in Thomas Jefferson's immortal words to William Smith: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

    Got my copy from Matt yesterday, I finished Unintended Consequences last week, Pa. Patriot let me borrow it. My wife asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told her this book, Matt was good enough to sign it for me too. Thank you Matt, I just started reading it last night and I can't put it down, it's probably going to get me fired.
