Edwin Vieira: The Sword and Sovereignty ... is a study of the actual constitutional "right of the people to keep and bear Arms" in the Second Amendment in its inextricable relation to "the Militia of the several States," as opposed to the historically inaccurate and legally indefensible so-called "individual right to keep and bear arms" on which almost all contemporary advocates of the Second Amendment fixate. I describe "the individual right to keep and bear arms" as legally indefensible because fundamentally it is a right in name only, inasmuch as it lacks an effective remedy if an highly organized and armed tyranny sets out to suppress it, whereas the true "right of the people to keep and bear Arms" exercised in the context of "well regulated Militia" is the Constitution's own preferred remedy against usurpation and tyranny in their every aspect. Even though the Second Amendment is very much the subject of contemporary political debate, I seem to be one of the very few commentators saying as much − which, in these days of rampant legal and political confusion, misinformation and disinformation, is probably very convincing evidence that I am correct.
In any event, The Sword and Sovereignty breaks down into four parts: First, an analysis of the correct manner of interpreting the Constitution.Read more ›
The American militia were under the command of Captain, John Parker; and their orders were to remain non-antagonistic to the British. They were outnumbered by almost ten to one. So why didn't they lay down their arms when ordered to do so? "Because," says constitutional scholar Edwin Vieira, "free men with a duty to keep and bear arms never willingly lay down their arms. And at Lexington, none of them did." The heroic militia Captain John Parker warned his men, "if they mean to have a war let it begin here." And begin it did.
Importance of the State Militias
With his newest book, The Sword and Sovereignty, Edwin Vieira, Jr., has given us a magisterial work that meticulously documents the history of the early American Militias and why similar units must be revitalized today if we are to adequately confront our disintegration as a society and restore the republic that the Founders gave us. It is a book that will profoundly shock 98 percent of Americans. It is so overpowering in its legal logic and constitutional veracity that the intellectuality of Cicero and Plutarch comes to mind as one reads the prose.Read more ›
Another reviewer today already mentioned the excellent interview of Dr. Vieira by The Daily Bell, found here in its entirety: [...]
If you want an in-depth view of the purpose and contents of this book, read this important interview! Then buy the CD, read the book and start educating your state legislators and officials.
If 2,000 pages is daunting, be aware that there are many footnotes and references therein. Still intimidated? Start with Dr. Vieira's other book, Constitutional Homeland Security: A Call for Americans to Revitalize the Militia of the Several States, a mere 188 pages in length.
Also visit [...] and support this documentary film currently in the making to help spread Dr. Vieira's message.
A very good in-depth research on the subject, it might be a little heavy for some, but a must for all Patriots to the Cause of America!
