Sup. Ct. Gun Decision

by BruceHH on Feb 11, 2013

An interesting work on the fight over the meaning of the second amendment. It provides for interesting reading and dispels several of the myths concerning gun control and gun rights. The style of the book is a two-sided sword. Interspersed with the development of the DC versus Heller Supreme Court case are interesting sections on history. In essence while the Second Amendment has been, for the preponderance of US history, considered as stopping the Federal government from interfering with State militias, state constitutions gave individuals the right to bear arms. However, the preponderance of states also had laws controlling the ownership and carrying of weapons. The last chapter discusses the opinion of DC versus Heller and that is very interesting because it was not what I had expected.
