Nothing conjures up images of the American frontier and a
pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps view of freedom and independence
quite like guns. Gun Crusaders is a fascinating inside look at how
the four-million member National Rifle Association and its
committed members come to see each and every gun control threat as
a step down the path towards gun confiscation, and eventually
socialism. Enlivened by a rich analysis of NRA materials, meetings,
leader speeches, and unique in-depth interviews with NRA members,
Gun Crusaders focuses on how the NRA constructs and perceives
threats to gun rights as one more attack in a broad liberal
cultural war. Scott Melzer shows that the NRA promotes a nostalgic
vision of frontier masculinity, whereby gun rights defenders are
seen as patriots and freedom fighters, defending not the freedom of
religion, but the religion of individual rights and freedoms.
