Alan E. Van Vogt was a Canadian born writer. The book was written shortly after the first Canadian attempt to force long gun owners into a firearms registry. The Canadians revolted (peaceably, as Canadians do) and the first long gun registry attempt was destroyed.
The Canadians are now working on finishing off the second attempt. Yes, I got a lot of questions about the name, and kept a copy of the book available to answer them. A few people understood the literary reference.
