Origins of the Second Amendment



Need a holiday gift for your favorite Second Amendment advocate? “The Founder’s Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms” is a readable account of how the Founding Fathers arrived at the right to bear arms as a freedom as fundamental as that of free speech and freedom of religion. Even before the book was published last summer, author Dr. Stephen Halbrook’s research played an important role in the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the District of Columbia v Heller case reaffirming the Second Amendment rights of all Americans. (The research also formed the basis for NSSF’s supporting brief to the court.) The reason for the plug at this time is a promotion&nbspthat marks December 15 as America’s Bill of Rights Day, the anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. Check out the book at Amazon.
