Description

Ricochet

Confessions Of A Gun Lobbyist

"Ricochet tells the truth. With each page I can hear the echo of footsteps down the Rayburn Building's marbled halls as Feldman tells the intimate story few know and even fewer survive."


—Jack Brooks (D-Tex.), former Chairman, U.S. House Judiciary Committee

"Ricochet casts an eye-opening spotlight on the shadowy world of behind-the-scenes gun politics. Is it accurate? Absolutely! I was there."


—John Aquilino, former Director, NRA Public Education

"Ricochet is right on target. Feldman's behind-the-scenes memoir vividly describes America's firearms debate and struggle to win in extraordinary detail. I thoroughly enjoyed it."


—John W. Magaw, former Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms
