An excellent review of the 2nd Amendment and it's meaning through the ages in America from back when HANDGUNS were considered BAD and rifles the only legit form of self defense. This shows that handguns, military style rifles and shotguns are all Constitutionally protected.
It contains both pro and anti-gun essays on firearms.
If you only read a single book on the right to keep and bear arms in your lifetime, this should be that book. It categorically guts the hypocrisy and mummery of the gun control front virtually chapter and verse with full citation. It even allows gun control advocates the space to air their own version of the subject. The acrobatics required for them to express those views alone is worth acquisition of this book.
If you are on either side of this issue and are serious about your position, you must have a copy in hand when you confront your opponents. I also recommend the liberal application of tabulation.
