Buy my fast-paced SUSPENSE NOVEL, TARGET 91, to read about a 32yo journalist/heroine, who does something seemingly impossible in todays political climate. She listens to both sides of the gun debate. All the small details in the novel are based on facts from gun lobby rants to legally-blind citizens being able to buy guns in Iowa. Some of the absurdities of gun ownership in the States are truly bizarre and hilarious.
In TARGET 91, my satirical novel on American gun culture, I sourced pro-gun talk from gun owners chat rooms and gun club websites. Here is Gig DeKant, CEO of the (fictional) NGSA (National Gun and Shooters Association):
‘Those pea-brained, yellow-bellied, doped-out, tree-hugging, faggot Leftards have sympathizers working in each and every government agency and, mark my words, they are coming to take your guns.’
My satirical novel TARGET 91 looks at absurdities on both sides of the gun debate, but here is one of the many legal absurdities showcased in the book:
“This is how stupid the gun debate has become. Polk County Officials in Iowa have issued gun permits to people who are legally blind. Refusing a permit would, apparently, violate the Disabilities Act. Is this why the 2nd Amendment was written? So blind people can own guns? Do we really need a blind militia to protect this country?”
There are many twists and turns in the plot of TARGET 91. But with guns, sex and an outrageous (but fictional) National Gun and Shooters Association (NGSA) CEO ranting SHOOT THE LOONY LEFTIES, what’s not to like especially when the ‘LOONY LEFTIES’ start shooting back?
“To get anything done the radical has to commit evil acts for good causes.”
Americans might be surprised to discover that Australians are fascinated by American Gun Culture. Ever since we first flicked on the tellie in 1956 Aussies have had a constatn diet of American TV shoot-’em-ups:
The Lone Ranger
The Streets of San Francisco
Need I go on. These are just a few TV shows off the top of my head. I haven’t even ventured into films. But few Aussies know that the gun laws changed in the USA when the 2nd Amendment was reinterpreted in 2004 and the again in 2008. Hence the need for a satirical novel looking at VICE and FOLLY in the USA today.
