Pro-Gun Children’s Book Explodes in Popularity After Being Ridiculed by Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert

“My Parents Open Carry,” a children’s book written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew in 2011, exploded in popularity this week after being ridiculed by comedians Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert.


“What a beautiful bedtime story,” Colbert said sarcastically of the book. “The world is full of maniacs who want to hurt you and the police can’t help. Goodnight, honey!”

The co-authors appeared on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday to discuss the craze, saying that since Maher and Colbert discussed the book, they’ve gotten interview requests from around the world.

“Germany, Australia, China ran a story on it,” Jeffs remarked, adding that they’ve soared up the Amazon bestseller list, as well.

The two said the book is best for ages 12 and up, though they’ve gotten positive feedback from parents reading it to their five-year-old children.

FK – Haven’t read this but in the vid they discuss the ‘National Guard’ vs. the Militia, which the NATIONAL Guard isn’t. For that I’ll give them 5 gold sticky stars.
