What were the titles John? I just re-read _Unintended Consequences_(John Ross), as
well as _Gateway to Tyranny_(Zelman), and _Gates of Fire_(Pressfield). I recommend
all to anyone on the list. The first is a rather large novel about the gun culture
in america, the second is a documentation of the translation Senator Thomas Dodd
did of the Reichsgeletsblatt when he wrote the Gun Control Act of 1968, and the
third is a historical novel about the battle between the Spartans and the Persians
at Thermopylae.
