Book Review: Nikki Goeser's "Denied A Chance"

Book Review: Nikki Goeser's "Denied A Chance"


I had previously heard of Nikki Goeser's story but did not take take the time to read her account in her memoir before now. My copy from Amazon was in my mailbox this morning, so that was my cue to read it.
From the very beginning, the story starts immediately with a quick run-up to the murder of her husband. Listening to her account was tough to bear but it was totally necessary to understand her mindset today as it relates to her fervent desire to advocate for gun rights.
In the aftermath, you will be given a crash-course in what it is like to lose a loved one. Many of us have not lost a spouse, so we are only left imagine on our own what it is like unless we are given a first-hand account. Nikki goes into great detail of her experience. It takes a ton of courage to open up and share that part of her life with her readers.
Later, we are informed of her work within the gun rights community and how she helped to get a Restaurant Carry Bill passed in her state of TN. Thereafter, we learn of her on the behalf of other states seeking to have their own gun laws reformed.
Finally, we get to learn of her frustrations with the criminal justice system. They say that it moves slow but steady. In the case of her husband's killer - whom she never names in the book - it took three long years for the trial to begin. I won't spoil how everything turns out. I will leave that for you to discover.
In all, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was a good and relatively quick read. I knocked it out in one sitting and heartily endorse it for the library of anyone interested in self-defense, personal protection, and gun rights - especially women.
