Well now this is something you don’t hear every day, but is definitely a welcome breath of fresh air in the midst of the insanity of homosexual, feminist and revisionist history books aimed at America’s children. My Parents Open Carry has become a bestseller at Amazon.com.
The book tells the story of 13-year-old Brenna Strong running errands with her parents on a typical Saturday. Richard and Bea, Brenna’s parents, lawfully open carry for self-defense and are joined by many other families who are standing up for their rights which are to be protected under the Second Amendment, and making gun ownership more mainstream by demonstrating what a responsible gun owner actually is and why they are so adamant about the right to keep and bear arms.
My Parents Open Carry was written in the hope of providing a basic overview of the right to keep and bear arms as well as the growing practice of the open carry of a handgun. 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. Our goal was to provide a wholesome family book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, i.e., that self-defense is a basic natural right and that firearms provide the most efficient means for that defense. We truly hope you will enjoy this book and read and discuss it with your children over and over again.
As the Obama administration has used Attorney General Eric Holder’s “brainwashing” agenda, with regards to guns, to instill fear in the minds of Americans and claim that those that carry guns are “undermining justice,” Jeffs and Nephew have sought to counter that mentality with the truth. Their aim is to help people on both sides of the issues understand the rights of gun owners and hopefully, to respect those rights.
“As you read this book, you will learn about the growing practice of open carry, the 2nd Amendment, and the right and responsibility of self-defense,” the website reads.
“Before writing this, we looked for pro-gun children’s books and couldn’t find any,” wrote the authors. “Our goal was to provide a wholesome family book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, i.e., that self-defense is a basic natural right and that firearms provide the most efficient means for that defense. We truly hope you will enjoy this book and read and discuss it with your children over and over again.”
While the United Nations has claimed that there is no such right as the right for humans to defend themselves, both the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as well as the Second Amendment affirm that there is a right to such defense.
David Kopel, professor of Advanced Constitutional Law at Denver University and the author I quoted from in my article The British Banned Guns On Our Founding Fathers & It Brought About A Revolution, wrote against the UN’s position in a piece titled The Human Right of Self-Defense.
“The United Nations Human Rights Council has declared that there is no human right to self-defense. Moreover, the Council has ordered all governments to enact very restrictive gun laws (more severe than those of Washington, D.C., or New York City, for example), and has declared that failure to enact such laws constitutes a human rights violation. Further, the HRC states that it is a human rights violation for a government to allow a person to use a firearm in self-defense against a rapist or other criminal who is not attempting homicide.”
While most of us understand that the United Nations does not have our best interest in mind here in the United States, we also know that the Obama administration doesn’t either, especially when it comes to guns.
Last year, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the infamous UN Small Arms treaty. Following the signing, Kerry called the treaty a “significant step” in addressing illegal gun sales, while claiming it would also protect gun rights.
“This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors. This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong,” he said. “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.”
The National Rifle Association had a completely different take, calling the measure a threat to “individual firearm ownership with an invasive registration scheme” and saying they would fight against these “blatant attacks on the constitutional rights and liberties of every law-abiding American.”
Jeffs and Nephew are hoping to do what I’ve been saying all along, and that is to reach the younger generation and pass on to them the information and the liberty that we hold so dear. May God grant many parents the courage to teach their children about the safe use of arms in order to defend life, liberty and property through My Parents Open Carry.
