With Loaded, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz pulls together Second Amendment rights and white supremacy in the United States, arguing that they are inextricably linked. Reviews from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly praise the amount of research and analysis in this book, saying it presents “a formidable argument” (Kirkus). Reaching from the early settlers to the current climate, Dunbar-Ortiz presents a people’s—specifically, people of colour—history of the Second Amendment. A thought-provoking read for everyone looking to take part in the difficult but necessary conversation about gun rights and gun violence.
