In just more than six weeks, Emily Miller’s powerfully personal book “Emily Gets Her Gun … But Obama Wants to Take Yours” will be published.
Her story? The Washington Times senior opinion editor was taken aback at her own challenges while trying to legally purchase a gun in the nation’s capital — and found her experiences revealed what could happen on a national level if President Obama gets the gun control policy of his dreams.
While she explored the complexities of policy, Second Amendment rights and the threat of Capitol Hill “gun grabbers,” Emily also discovered the very real, distinctly American experience of gun ownership.
The book followed, and it is due in stores Sept. 2. For now, though, the cover of Emily’s book has been revealed by Regnery Publishing, chosen with the kind help of many Times readers and other fans who voted for the image from eight other choices through an online poll.
“It means a great deal to me that people took the time to vote, and to share their own pictures and stories about gun ownership. While my book reveals a lot about policy, it also provides an accurate portrait of American gun owners and their families, and the long history they bring with them,” Emily says.
“‘Emily Gets Her Gun’ is a stunning indictment of the rampant bias against guns in government and culture. But it’s not just about gun owners’ feelings,” observes Marjory Ross, president and publisher of Regnery Publishing
“As soon as the Second Amendment is gutted by anti-gun extremists, every other fundamental right is a potential next target. Emily Miller knows better than anyone that if you care about freedom, you need to care about guns,” she says.
