    the renowned constitutional scholar and literary critic Prof. Sen. Ted Cruz.  If I may, however, quibble with your view that in his analogy Cruz claims "guns are books".  Cruz actually is claiming, I believe, that books are, in fact, guns.

    Thus having a copy of 1984 tucked into your waistband will provide you with easily accessible ammunition to quickly counter the crazy propaganda typically espoused by Tea Party Patriots.

    A hard-cover edition of Lord of the Flies at the ready on your bookshelf will help you deal with the apocalyptic rantings of all manner of conservatives.

    And a dog-eared copy of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Idiot always comes in handy when one is trying to make sense of the comments of a Republican senator.
