Firearms Regulation In the Bill of Rights
Eighteenth-Century English Language and the U.S. Constitution
Nonfiction, English. English words in the Bill of Rights are being misconstrued. The Bill of Rights supports gun law and gun regulation.
No other book in the marketplace covers the same ground.
This book does not just retrace recent arguments by attorneys specializing in the second amendment. Interdisciplinary discussion looks at the wording of the Bill of Rights through hundreds of English and American public documents, early American newspapers, and early English dictionaries.
From comments by proposal readers: Speaking to both scholarly and general interests, this book extends the examination of eighteenth-century usage in unusual ways to U.S. history. Thorough, rigorous research. This compelling and original project stands out in independence and singularity, an inspiring example of how well-trained academics should participate in broader national discussions. The exhaustive archival research, the precision of the intellectual concerns, and the rare tenacity in pursuit of the evidence speak to an unusual single-mindedness.
