"Brian Doherty's Gun Control on Trial is to the Heller case what Richard Kluger's Simple Justice is to the Brown decision--an essential history made up of equal parts legal theory and personal struggle, presented in page-turning fashion."
Professor of Law, University of Tennessee
"The Supreme Court's Heller decision wasn't merely a political bombshell, it was an historic advance in the ongoing struggle to restore the first human right: the right to self-defense. Brian Doherty, a tireless intellectual sleuth, not only sheds light on the political and legal questions surrounding gun rights today, he lucidly puts them in their proper historical and philosophical context. This is required reading for those interested in, never mind committed to, the right to self-defense."
