APPEARS IN Second Amendment

New Book Revisits Case Findings On Individual`s Right To Arms

Sunday, August 24, 2003

An August 19 WorldNetDaily.com article reports that a six-year study of firearm related Supreme Court cases has uncovered literally dozens of apparently "forgotten" decisions affecting an individual`s Second Amendment rights. Authored by David B. Kopel, Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook, and Alan Korwin, "Supreme Court Gun Cases" finds conclusively that, "the Supreme Court has recognized an individual right to arms for most of the past two centuries." The book`s publisher, Bloomfield Press, says, "Three dozen of the cases quote or mention the Second Amendment directly." Taken together they should further undermine the gun-ban lobby`s attempts to fallaciously reinterpret the Constitution`s guarantee of an individual citizen`s right to keep and bear arms.
