A childrens book published by the co-founders of Michigan Open Carry portraying a family day out while the parents sport holstered handguns has liberal tongues wagging all over the Internet.
My Parents Open Carry was written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew to provide an overview of Second Amendment rights and the practice of openly carrying firearms. The book is described this way on its website:
Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together. Whats not so typical is that Brennas parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense. The Strongs join a growing number of families that are standing up for their 2nd Amendment rights by open carrying and bringing gun ownership out of the closet and into the mainstream.
The book has sparked controversy among liberals, drawing criticism in online outlets as well as social media.
Raw Story made its point of view obvious when posting this headline over an article on the book: My Parents Open Carry kids book portrays day in the life of typical gun nut family.
Elizabeth Law, childrens books editor and publisher made several postings mocking the book on Twitter, such as these tweets:
A DemocraticUnderground.com discussion board displayed comments posted by members, including these:
This would [be] comforting if we lived in a post-Apocalyptic zombie-filled world. But we dont.
These open carry folks are either paranoid or mistakenly think that gun gives them some power over their lives.
I feel for any kid brought up in that environment/culture. The long-term consequences wont improve our society.
After a spirited debate, the site blocked further comments due to the thread being off topic in the general discussion forum.
Americans Against the Tea Party headlined its article about the book, My Parents Open Carry the Childrens Book for Kids with Insane Ammosexual Parents!, calling it a new piece of childrens insanity.
Jeffs and Nephew wrote the book because they looked for pro-gun childrens books and couldnt find any, with a goal of providing a wholesome family book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, according to the books website.
Maybe thats because publishers like Elizabeth Law would have nothing to do with such a topic.

These comments obviously come from someone who has
never been on foot in various parts of our urban environment.
“This would [be] comforting if we lived in a post-Apocalyptic zombie-filled world. But we dont.”
Oh. Really? You obviously don’t follow politics.
Lefties hate it when you use their own propaganda methods against them.
Given the increasingly rabid behavior of the left, open and concealed carry seem quite wise.
Liberal gay people love making us feel uncomfortable.
We need to learn from them.
Anyone want to bet that this will never be used for a textbook like “Heather has 2 momies” or “Daddy’s special friend”? I’ll give you great odds on the bet!
I think liberals should just flee from Michigan, preferably to someplace far away from the North American continent.
It’s also the very kind of world the America and American hating Mahdi and the disbarred Moochelle are fanatically, every day and every way trying to impose on us.
I have always wondered why leftists are so scared of guns. I think it’s because they don’t want people to be able to resist the state.
Or something worse...like Chicago.
They have no problems with guns. They only want to disarm their intended victims
Love it! "Out of the closet." LOL. Up next..."bringing gun ownership out of the shadows."
That's true- We live in a pre-Apocalyptic zombie-filled world. That's why I carry.
I believe you are correct and have thought this way for decades.
Leftists, while mouthing off about tolerance and love, actually want everyone to be in lockstep with them and if not they want those "heretics" to be either thrown in jail for life or executed.
They hate guns because they know we will not only resist but win, and we will win. If they try to go all out to subjugate us they will reap a whirlwind they cannot yet comprehend.
Wait till the find out both of Heather’s two mommies have CCW permits.
they work to get your stuff criminalized, blacklisted, banned, censored.
The lib/prog types think that teaching a child to safely and responsibly handle firearms makes them potenial killer? OK then, using this logic, does providing them sex ed make them potential prostitutes and porn stars?
Oh its more than that.
They think that the average citizen cant be trusted with a fire arm. They might lose control of themselves and kill someone like those cops in NYC did that nice cigarette salesman.
They worry that a citizen with a firearm might accidentally shoot someone like that cop in the subway a few years ago did when he shot the teenager sitting on the floor of that subway.
The Leftist simply dont believe that youre average citizen has the training required to safely handle firearms in public.
