    There was an online version for a while, free for all, then it went away. i was lucky enough to read the whole thing online, and want a copy! there is a new one from him, which I think is out, the sequel to UC.
    UC is an excellent book, and reads very easily, with TONS of good, solid info, well researched.

    Shortened Version

    silvercorvette:
    That article shares the name, but isn\'t at all the same. Unintended Concequences is a fictional novel that deals with our 2nd ammendment rights. Highly recommended :)

    One of my personal favorites. John autographed mine when I met him at missouricarry met/shoot. Interesting fella.

    If you liked Unintended Consequences, I'd recommend Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." It's not a gun book but it is definitely a classic on personal freedom. The writing styles are similar too.

    Pyrolyzer, both of those books are on my "Top 5 All-time" list....Atlas Shrugged is an amazing book!
    Unintended Consequences is a very good story that shows how gun-owners rights have been whittled down in the last century, and offers a "possible" solution for their recovery

    Enemies Foreign and Domestic by my personal friend Matt Bracken has been reviewed favorably by John Ross, author of Unintended Consequences.
    Try http://www.EnemiesForeignAndDomestic.com

    This book can be partially read on the website. 25 out of about 50 chapters can be read for free! Matt is well on his way to completing book # 2 of the trilogy.
