Gunfight : the battle over the right to bear arms in America
361 pages. No updates available.
This title takes a historical look at the Second Amendment, commonly referred to as the right to bear arms. The author examines how this right to bear arms has been balanced by gun control efforts since the founding of the nation in the 1700s. He does not attempt to support any single viewpoint but instead offers perspective on how the nation’s attitude on guns and gun control has evolved since the days of the “Wild West” and frontier life. Also included are some historical accounts of how the National Rifle Association came to be and how its efforts have varied over the years.
