Editorial Reviews

Review

Brilliant, important, and fun! An engaging, fast-paced, and fascinating analysis of our sacred rights to freedom and self-defense. A truly inspiring masterwork from one of America s greatest political writers. - Ann Coulter, Political Commentator and Bestselling Author --Front Cover

Classic Kopel logic, attention to detail and insightful historical reasoning, this is perfect ammunition for those who want to reload their minds before they shoot their mouths off. - Alan M. Gottlieb, Founder, Second Amendment Foundation and co-author of America Fights Back and Assault on Weapons --Back Cover

David Kopel is one of the most gifted and prolific scholars on the Second Amendment. He has a profound understanding of constitutional law needed to advance the right to keep and bear arms, coupled with a passion to confront our anti-gun opponents with a pull-no-punches tenacity. His latest work on firearms and freedom proves yet again that he is a valuable friend and ally to all who love freedom, and a formidable foe to those who seek to deny us our constitutional rights. - Sandra Froman, Past President, National Rifle Association

Aiming for Liberty is a must read for anyone interested in civil rights in general, and Second Amendment rights in particular. It is a testament to how far we ve come as a nation, and to how far we have yet to go, in our respect for this most important constitutional right. - Glenn Reynolds, Beauchamp Brogan Professor of Law at University of Tennessee, Instapundit.com guru, and author of An Army of Davids --Back Cover

Format: Paperback
Well written, tells the truth about the anti freedom groups, motives and tactics. Exposes the lies, and the sources of the funds. I doubt you'll be surprised though.

Format: Paperback
David Kopel takes a unique approach to the topic of freedom and self-defense by exploring the historical, cultural and philosophical bases for the topics. While it has a scholarly feel to it the book is both concise and an easy ready. Any serious student of self-determination and the right to self-defense should definitely read Kopel.

Brilliant and concise. Gives a brief history of gun control and the Second Amendment from one of the foremost experts in the world. Great explanations and illustrations of the importance of the right to keep and bear arms and what happens when that right is taken away.
