We all know the benefits of reading to our kids — but not all storybooks are created equal.
In one of the worst children’s books in history, pro-gun propaganda and Second Amendment rights is the storyline in My Parents Open Carry.
Do you even know what ‘open carry’ means? I didn’t either, until I discovered this handy new picture-book that helps parents explain to their kids why they tote their deadly weapon all over town.
In the children’s book, 13-year old Brenna wants to know why her parents open carry firearms everywhere they go — yes, even to the bookstore.
As stated in the book, “Open carry can deter a crime, it’s a faster draw, and it’s more comfortable in the summer when we wear lighter clothing.”
According to their official website, the picture-book “reflects the views of the majority of the American people,” and was written because the authors Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew “fear our children are being raised with a biased view of our constitution and especially in regards to the 2nd Amendment.”

Nothing savvier than finding a niche and marketing it. Before writing the “wholesome” piece of literature, published by White Feather Press, the authors said they couldn’t find any pro-gun children’s books on the market.
Some of the praise for this pro-gun children’s book include:
- “Outstanding, outstanding…every person should buy 5 copies of this book. Very well done…I believe long overdue.” James Towle, Host–American Trigger Sports Network.
- “I love it…boy does this fill a vacuum!” Alan Korwin, gunlaws.com
- “Love the book.” Mark Walters, Host– Armed American Radio
- “Wow we have two geniuses…” “The book by Jeffs and Nephew makes me proud…” “a wholesome children’s book on the joys of having parents carrying guns openly.” J. Hood
- “Delicious.” Doug Giles, Author and Host–Clash Radio
- “Very good message in this book.” Jules Arnold–Sons of Liberty Riders
- “Loved it, I ordered a copy for our school’s library” John Roshek, Founder–Citizens League for Self-Defense.
On the other hand, children’s book editor and publisher, Elizabeth Law, took to Twitter with her disapproval of the book.
