Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment

by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

While we may not like it, Americans have a more committed relationship to their guns than they do to their marriages. If you've ever been interested in uncovering the strange and radical events that led to the 2nd Amendment's fandom and all the other oddities that created the "gun nut" culture, then Loaded may just have what you're looking for. Covering topics from white nationalists (pronounced: racists) to school shootings, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz gives you an expansive look at what has led to the patriotic, gun-toting American. A good read if you're an activist looking for some insight, a recovering gun addict, or just looking to stay informed.
