Is this an accident? Probably not. Have you read 1984?
That this kind of book is allowed to be published is a crime. The author is a traitor to the Constitution.
This goes against every supreme court decision on the meaning of the second ammendment. As the first line of the 2nd is actually a preamble. Popular in writings of that time. This book has very little real history inside. Its mostly just a progessive indoctrination peice...
Amazon needs to remove this untrue, offensive, revisionist tripe from it's inventory. The authors are deliberately misinforming, i.e., LYING TO, the readers who will be unfortunate enough to be dumbed down by this carefully contrived piece of propaganda.
On page 102 there is a "summary" of the Bill of Rights. It is not a summary but a list of the alleged first ten amendments and the text is NOT ACCURATE. This is not the United States Constitution Bill of Rights but a wish list by the authors of what they would prefer if they could overturn the Bill of Rights. Here is a photo of page 102:
And, here, is the ACTUAL text of the REAL Bill of Rights:
A most deliberate re-writing of the actual amendments text. One needs to question who the authors are and why they are attempting to dis-inform their readers. What is the agenda here? A close examination of what the authors have substituted in place of the authentic text should alarm all students of history and anyone who values their rights.
The title of this book is "United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination". This is neither history nor suitable for any "advanced" placement in anything but ignorance. Even worse, this is being passed off as COLLEGE LEVEL.
The disinfo contained in this book is no accident and the agenda is sinister. There are anti American, anti constitution forces at work in this country and you're looking at the product of two of their minions.
I am requesting that Amazon immediately remove this item and stop offering it for sale.
This is a high school AP History text book and it can't even get the Bill of Rights correct? Not only is it a poor paraphrase of the 2nd amendment, its an outright lie.
The text book says "Second amendment: the people have the right to keep an bear arms in a state militia"
This implies that the amendment defines the rights of the people in what they may keep and bear arms for, and then also implies that it is only for the purpose of a state militia.
The actual second amendment says "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
This is clearly worded as a limit placed on government regarding the infringement of the people's natural, God-given right, to bear arms.
I'd give it zero stars, but evidently I had to give at least one to write this review.
The next edition will probably wipe out the Constitution of the US entirely and replace it with Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. I imagine the progressive college professors are giddy with excitement knowing that their agenda is sanctified by the Dept of Ed and spoon fed to young, impressionable minds.
