Shaky Pete recommended some very good books for beginners.

Armed and Female by Paxton Quigley

Yes, it's aimed towards females but it contains a lot of very good information in it for beginners on how to choose a gun and reasoning behind choosing that gun.

Stupid FOIDs. Yet another reason I will never live or work in that state, no matter the offer.

FOID? What is this FOID? Sounds like some communist yankee thing.

It is exactly a communist yankee thing. Stands for Firearm Owner's IDentification.

The only two places in the western hemisphere where you need a card to own a gun are Illinois and Cuba.

Maybe your minions simply thought firearms would work better than torches and pitchforks?

All joking aside, that's way cool. Get as many people into the culture as possible.

Having to have a FOID card to buy a firearm doesn't bother me. It's the process in getting one that does.
