Big Guns, because I sure had fun reading it. Political humor can be tricky, especially during a time period when something that sounds crazy one day becomes policy the next. Israel nails it in this novel. In response to a campaign to ban handguns, the CEO of a gun maker and his lobbyist convince a member of Congress to introduce legislation to mandate that every American must own a firearm. The lobbyist, Sunny (Sunshine) McCarthy, is the daughter of the mayor of a town where the CEO has a home. Her mom the mayor passes an ordinance banning guns in that town and the CEO sets forces in motion to retaliate. Any reader looking for some funny fiction should consider this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Big Guns from amazon.com.
