Near the beginning of the book, Mr. Barton asks a very direct question: ‘Do individual citizens have a constitutionally-protected right “to keep and bear arms”?’ He then uses four sources – America’s earliest legal commentaries, the writings of the Founding Fathers, early State laws, and State constitutions – to prove, in his words, “There can be no doubt that under the original intentions and interpretations, the guarantees of the Second Amendment were extended to every citizen individually.” With a seemingly endless bibliography and endnotes section, it’s easy to get lost in the pages of history Mr. Barton has uncovered. This book contains a wealth of knowledge, and is a fascinating read! I highly recommend it!
The book use for me at this point is to collect the source material which is cited and communicate the full, non-truncated text(s).
Also worth your time to look up the author! The headlines / Google results are all you need to know about what the book will bring to your life.
If you are looking for an insightful and well thought out read on our countries second amendment - this is not your book.
If you are looking for a propaganda pamphlet for your local Trump rally - pick yourself up a copy.
