So I just finished John Ross's book Unindended Consequences and I want to know what everyone here that has read it thinks. I loved it and think this should be a required book for seniors in High School to read.

Yes, I have read it and love the book. Yes, it should be required reading for High school seniors. I read the book about 12 years ago. I personally know 2 guys that are in the book. Every gun owner should read this book and see how our government is been screwing us.

It is my favorite book

It was referred to by some as one of the most dangerous books in America. I agree, as an 800+ page book bridges the gap between the high-cap but hard to conceal Encyclopedia Britannica and the easily concealed but underpowered bible. Seriously though, John Ross was brilliant in his ability to blend the fictional characters' lives with real-life events. I am actually re-reading it when I poop.

for government officials to see what could happen if they continue screwing us.
