Editorial Reviews

Review

"Those who would limit the right to keep and bear arms to members of state militias have never come to grips with the intentions of the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment to protect blacks and unionists from southern militias (and others) by enforcing their personal right to arms. Stephen Halbrook presents a brief on behalf of this forgotten history--a history that no serious student of the Constitution can ignore."-Randy E. Barnett, Austin B. Fletcher Professor Boston University School of Law

Book Description

The only comprehensive study ever published on the intent of the framers of the 14th Amendment and of Reconstruction-era civil rights legislation to protect the right to keep and bear arms from State infringement.

Format: Hardcover
Stephen Halbrook does it again with a scholarly exegesis of the Fourteenth Amendment exposing anew the racist roots of gun control. Halbrook reveals the lies and lays bare the cynicism of those who claim the Constitution permits or even favors anti-gun laws. A must read for those who still believe in liberty. The Fourteenth Amendment meant to enshrine and extend the Second Amendment specifically, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights, to newly freed blacks and make them enforceable against state governments.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an important work on the origins of the fourteenth amendment with focus on the incorporation of the second amendment. It's written by a serious legal scholar and this text has been used in prominent trials. If you're a serious student, this is a great book.

As a side note, this is a hardcopy first edition of this work. Pretty rare and good from a historical standpoint. The binding is good hardcover fabric. It's well worth having if you're a serious scholar.

On the other hand - if you just want the text in the most updated fashion, it has been republished in an updated paperback and kindle edition as, Securing Civil Rights: Freedmen, the Fourteenth Amendment, and the Right to Bear Arms, Updated Edition. You can save yourself some money and get this in a digital format if you just get this. Amazon should update their records to show that this is the old edition and that there is a new edition of this very important work.
