Summary
When American mayors start a campaign to ban handguns from their cities, Otis Cogsworth, CEO of Cogsworth International Arms worries about the effects on his company. He and his fearsome publicist Sunny McCarthy convince an Arkansas congressman to introduce the 'American Freedom from Fear Act': a law mandating that every American must own a gun. In rural Asabogue, Mayor Lois Leibowitz passes an ordinance to ban firearms. But Otis Cogsworth's holiday mansion sits nearby. Otis orchestrates a recall election against Lois. Asabogue resident Jack Steele, a has-been action star, runs against her. Thousands of pro-gun militants armed to the teeth, and their opponents, descend on Asabogue. Meanwhile, Washington politicians are caught between a mighty gun lobby and the absurdity of every American man, woman and child carrying a gun
Summary
In response to efforts to ban handguns in America’s cities, the CEO of an arms company, worried about his bottom line, introduces federal legislation that would require every American own a gun
