Editorial Reviews

Review

Brilliant, important, and fun! An engaging, fast-paced, and fascinating analysis of our sacred rights to freedom and self-defense. A truly inspiring masterwork from one of America s greatest political writers. - Ann Coulter, Political Commentator and Bestselling Author --Front Cover

Classic Kopel logic, attention to detail and insightful historical reasoning, this is perfect ammunition for those who want to reload their minds before they shoot their mouths off. - Alan M. Gottlieb, Founder, Second Amendment Foundation and co-author of America Fights Back and Assault on Weapons --Back Cover

David Kopel is one of the most gifted and prolific scholars on the Second Amendment. He has a profound understanding of constitutional law needed to advance the right to keep and bear arms, coupled with a passion to confront our anti-gun opponents with a pull-no-punches tenacity. His latest work on firearms and freedom proves yet again that he is a valuable friend and ally to all who love freedom, and a formidable foe to those who seek to deny us our constitutional rights. - Sandra Froman, Past President, National Rifle Association

Aiming for Liberty is a must read for anyone interested in civil rights in general, and Second Amendment rights in particular. It is a testament to how far we ve come as a nation, and to how far we have yet to go, in our respect for this most important constitutional right. - Glenn Reynolds, Beauchamp Brogan Professor of Law at University of Tennessee, Instapundit.com guru, and author of An Army of Davids --Back Cover

Format: Paperback
Well written, tells the truth about the anti freedom groups, motives and tactics. Exposes the lies, and the sources of the funds. I doubt you'll be surprised though.

Great book. Must read for gun-control advocates and for gun rights advocates. The book opens up a current and historical view of the realities of the gun control debate.
