Asabogue’s Mayor Lois Leibowitz passes an ordinance to prohibit weapons within the town—right in Otis Cogsworth’s yard. Otis retaliates by means of orchestrating a keep in mind election opposed to Lois and Jack Steele, a wealthy city resident, runs opposed to her. although the election is for the mayor of a village on big apple, Steele brings within the immense weapons of yank politics to defeat Lois: political specialists, great PACs, and celebrities. quickly, hundreds of thousands of pro-gun and anti-gun partisans descend on Asabogue, besides an collection of seriously armed rightwing militias and the nationwide information media. Bucolic Asabogue turns into a tinderbox. in the meantime, Washington politicians in either events are stuck among a strong gun foyer whose aid they want for reelection and the absurdity of requiring that each American with waivers for kids less than age 4 hold a gun.
