North Central Wisconsin Gun Collectors Association Show

The Fall 2018 NCWGCA Gun Show will be held at its new location in Merrill, Wisconsin on Friday and Saturday September 14 and 15, 2018. The show will be open from 3-8PM Friday and 9AM till 4PM Saturday and will be located at the Merrill Expo Building at 200 Sales Street.

I will be attending this Show and promoting my published research on Second Amendment developmental history including my massive Founding Era document collection and the more recently published definitive history. Paperback copies of TheOrigin of the Second Amendment and copies of The Founders' View ofthe Right to Bear Arms will be available for sale at the Golden Oak Books table for $30.00 per copy. Save Amazon shipping charges and pick up copies in person.

The Origin of the Second Amendment was extensively relied upon in the U.S. Vs Emerson, Parker vs District of Columbia, and District of Columbia vs Heller Federal Court decisions concluding that the Second Amendment was developed as a Bill of Rights provision intended to protect individual rights. In the Supreme Court's Heller case, my then newly published history, TheFounders' View of the Right to Bear Arms, was cited in each pro-rights historical brief filed by those supporting a historically accurate ruling.

Stop by the Golden Oak Books table at this fall's North Central Wisconsin Gun Collectors Association Show in Merrill, Wisconsin to say hello, ask questions, and obtain copies of my self-funded and self-published research, which so heavily influenced the three American Federal Courts that based their decisions on documented American historical reality. Golden Oak Books and my research library are located a little over 100 miles north of Merrill at Ontonagon in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Note that my web page - secondamendmentinfo.com - has extensive links to many of my short online articles fact checking and documenting the numerous historical errors of those who support gun control and argue against an individual rights understanding of the Second Amendment. At On Second Opinion Blog, these articles include an extensive series on the errors of professional historians supporting Washington DC's gun ban in the Heller case as well as the off base historical views asserted in Justice Stevens' Heller dissent. Locate individual articles with the index at top of page. There is also a direct website link to my article in The Journal on Firearms and Public Policy, which itself is a much condensed history of the Second Amendment's development.

Hope to see you in Merrill!

See You At The Central Wisconsin Gun Collectors Association Show Next Weekend

CWGCA Gun Show In Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin April 14 and 15, 2018

     The Central Wisconsin Gun Collectors Association Spring Gun Show will be held at the Fond Du Lac County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15, 2018. This is Wisconsin's largest gun show.
     I will be at the show answering questions about Second Amendment historical development and selling copies of The Origin of the Second Amendment and The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms. Alan Gura, winning attorney in the Supreme Court Heller individual rights decision, described these two books as "the authoritative sources on the subject". If you can attend and have thought about obtaining your own copy of the complete Constitutional Era collection of Second Amendment related sources and/or the only history based directly upon that collection and earlier documents, you can stop by and pick them up directly from the author/editor/publisher/researcher. I will be at a table in the entryway annex.
     The Origin of the Second Amendment contains a literal transcript of virtually every relevant 1787-1792 source. These include full documents or relevant excerpts of state ratifying convention debates on every period Bill of Rights related proposal, arms discussion, militia related commentary, as well as all relevant newspaper articles, pamphlets, and private letters discussing those subjects. Included are full copies of proposals for amending the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights proposal to state legislatures from the First U.S. Congress, and the relevant Second Amendment language returned as ratified from state legislatures.
     Remember, knowledge is power.

David Hardy's Latest Law Review Article

David Hardy's latest law review article, Lawyers, Historians and "Law Office History" can be downloaded here. It deals with professional historians' historical errors, largely relating to various arguments about the English Bill of Rights.

Dave's new article includes a link to my blog post, Root Causes of Never-Ending Second Amendment Dispute - Part 10, and notes that this series of posts has twenty four parts. Why so many parts on historical fact checking professional historians? Because, as Dave Hardy documents on other historical matters, they made a lot of mistakes and completely separated the Second Amendment from its actual American Bill of Rights developmental history. The first part of the Root Causes series can be found here.

I like to refer to the activities of the professional historians who provided the Supreme Court a complete historical disgrace in the Heller case as involved with History Office Law. One must always carefully fact check every assertion and citation from professional historians arguing for gun control regarding Second Amendment historical development.
