The Second Amendment Book Bomb on Bill of Rights Day, December 15!

Friday, December 12, 2008

Monday, December 15, marks America’s Bill of Rights Day, the anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution.  To commemorate this event, the Second Amendment Book Bomb website has been created, a unique and powerful way to communicate the importance the Bill of Rights’ Second Amendment plays in the protection of liberty.  With your help, we can launch constitutional rights to the top of national book bestseller lists, making a loud and clear statement that Second Amendment rights are inalienable!

The Second Amendment already won a historic victory on June 26, 2008, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own and bear arms.  However, the Heller ruling was immediately attacked, and efforts continue on the national level and across the country to undermine gun rights.  Therefore, to secure the Second Amendment now and for the future, the American public must be made aware of the reasons why the Founders sought to protect this cherished right.

And now we have the tool to do so. Fascinating, seminal, and inspiring, the new book, “The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms,” by Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook*, is the perfect way both to educate ourselves and to reach friends and family who don’t yet understand Second Amendment rights. Our goal is to reach one million Americans with Dr. Halbrook’s book during the Holiday Season and throughout the New Year ahead. 

To achieve this goal, the Second Amendment Book Bomb website has been established to create a phenomenon so great that even the mainstream media will have to take notice. Let’s spread “The Founders’ Second Amendment” so far and wide that Americans across the political spectrum, and all walks of life, will be discussing the Second Amendment in every possible venue.

With your help, we can make Dr. Halbrook’s book #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. To make this happen, please go to the website and pledge to buy at least one copy of the book before or on the December 15th Second Amendment Book Bomb date. Let’s make this the most amazing and explosive event ever on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and declare in no uncertain terms that the Second Amendment will be around for a very long time to come.

With your pledge to buy the book, we can:

    * Make The Founders’ Second Amendment #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.
    * Make The Founders’ Second Amendment a #1 bestseller on Amazon.com.
    * Make The Founders’ Second Amendment a #1 bestseller on BarnesandNoble.com.
    * Make The Founders’ Second Amendment a #1 bestseller on BooksAMillion.com.

Please help now by making your pledge here:

*Stephen P. Halbrook is a Research Fellow at the Independent Institute and author of The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms. Having won three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, he filed an Amici Curiae Brief in District of Columbia v. Heller on behalf of 55 members of the Senate, the Senate President, and 250 members of the House of Representatives.
