Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz is not only a brilliant historian (she wrote “An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States”), but was also an avid gun enthusiast and belonged to an armed underground group. Who better to write a book arguing that the second amendment and white supremacy are inextricably bound, and that the mainstream gun debate is just a dichotomy between two red herrings? This book is going to make people on both sides of the gun debate uncomfortable, and it is a necessary discomfort.
