Anyone who thinks the 2nd Amendment does not mean exactly what it implies should read this.

The bottom line? During the time the Bill of Rights was debated and ratified, everyone understood it granted an individual right to bear arms. It may be debatable now, but it was not back then.

If you want to understand what philosophers like Plato and Socrates thought, what the founding fathers thought and wrote, what the traditional underpinnings of the second amendment are and what the case law reads, read this.

You might not like what it says. You might not agree with it. But, it's what they thought and did.

Yes, it's pro gun, the guy who wrote this is an nra lawyer I think. If you're anti gun, you might want to steer clear or use this for a bonfire.

Halbrook offers in this update of the earlier book arguably the best of the books that cover the nature and history of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States. If you only read one on the subject, choose this one. I read loads on the subject, including the brilliant work of Dr. Joyce Lee Malcolm, and this leads the list in overall information, theory, and history.

Considering the slippery slope of anti-2nd Amendment fever running rampant in uninformed liberal circles, this book is the cure needed to break the sweat that's clouding legislators' eyes from D.C. to Podunk. The unintended consequences of 'panic' or 'polically incorrect' laws, regulations, and yes, treaties, that would infringe on every citizen's rights are exposed and the arguments for usurping our Constitution and taking your guns and the right to keep and bear them are debunked at every turn by Mr. Halbrook.

That Every Man Be Armed is a book the fully follows the history of the most basic natural right of LIFE. If one cannot protect one's idividual right to life than none of the other unalienable rights are secure.

I often end up in discussions, especially with people who do not like the public owning of firearms, and what the second amendment means. This book has given many more references to support the position that it means what it says, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed:.
