PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – As the saying goes, any publicity is good publicity.
A new children’s book has taken the media by storm, but not necessarily in a positive way.
Critics complain the book, “My Parents Open Carry,” teaches children about “adult issues.” Opponents of the book fear it will do harm to developing child.
Co-authors Nathan Nephew and Brian Jeffs met in Michigan and soon created the non-profit group, “Michigan Open Carry.” They were continuously asked the same questions over and over again, so they decided to write a book with the answers. It became a children’s book when they realized there was no youth book that addressed the issue of the Second Amendment.
Jeffs says the family in the book is a responsible, gun-owning family who go about their day and interact with people asking the same questions the authors have been asked. He adds the book explains issues like safe gun storage, self-defense, safe gun handling, the pros and cons of gun control, the Second Amendment and militia.
