Bill Of Rights Day Anniversary Holiday Half Price Book SaleBeginning on December 15th, the anniversary of U.S. Bill of Rights ratification, and running through the Holiday Season, The Origin of the Second Amendment document collection and The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms history - the authoritative books on the subject of the Second Amendment's history according to Alan Gura - will be half price at Amazon.
Alan Gura won the Supreme Court Heller case by applying a reality based litigation strategy to the Second Amendment dispute. A significant reason he was able to win the case supporting our right to keep and bear arms was because he relied on thoroughly documented facts of American history relative to the Second Amendment's development and meaning. Mr. Gura possessed the only pre-publication copy of The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms in late 2007, and he used it very effectively to argue the individual rights nature of the Second Amendment's protection.
The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms presents and documents every historical fact regarding development of Second Amendment related bill of rights language from the early Revolutionary Era to the final amendment wording, and it places these facts into their actual historical context, which was always a limit on government. In addition to normal footnotes for earlier periods, the vast majority of citations in The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms are direct cites to page numbers of documents in The Origin of the Second Amendment collection, which reprints virtually all of the relevant Founding Era sources.
In the Heller case, The Origin of the Second Amendment was the most cited document collection among the historical briefs, and was cited several times in Justice Scalia's majority decision. It was also cited extensively in the prior Emerson and Parker decisions from U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals. The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms was cited in every historical brief supporting individual rights in Heller, and was heavily relied upon by Alan Gura to help win the case.
