This book is full of factual quotes that are NOT taken out of context. His research was exceptionally meticulous. You will actually miss out on some key points if you don't check out the end notes. Once you review the end notes you will realize how much research he really did. Make your own decision about the quality versus the unjust negative reviews. My wallet makes my most important statement about the book. I've bought more than 24 copies to distribute to friends and associates over the years. I have not done anything close to this with any other book, except for distributing about 100 copies of a booklet with the US Constitution in it.
I've periodically scanned negative reviews and found them to be guilty of omission (of facts and truth) or full of anti-gun bias. Some people willfully ignore Truth, because it is contrary to their ideals and agendas. For me it is similar to hearing and reading movie reviews. I know it must be worth looking at if liberal/progressive sources attack it. Some of the reviews here on Amazon.com are clearly by hard core anti-gunners. Watch out for that.
Some people compare this book negatively to other pro-gun writers. I really don't understand this behavior. Most of these writers all emphasize different areas or approach gun rights from different angles. They compliment each other and should not be put in conflict with each other. Mr. Halbrook has an excellent writing style and does excellent research. It's OK to like other books more than this one, but there is no objectively just reason to talk bad about this book.
I highly recommend this book. You will absolutely not waste your time reading it.
Reading this informative book will arm you with the information you need to refute the absurd claims of gun grabbers that the notion of the individual right to keep and bear arms is somehow new, or alternatively, outdated, or that the supreme court has ever settled this matter in their favor--in fact it demonstrates that the 2nd Amendment affirmed a centuries-old right that had already existed, and had continued to exist, well into the 20th century. After reading the thorough treatment of the topic this book provides, one becomes certain that the ancient right remains instrumental in protecting American liberty, and that it is no accident that where liberty is most trampled is also where the right is most trampled. What's more, one becomes certain that the United States is at a point in history where we will either once again demand the uninfringed right, or will descend into tyranny.
