The Second Amendment Book Bomb Hits #1 in Law, #12 in History, #24 in Nonfiction at Amazon.com!

Friday, January 9, 2009

On America's Bill of Rights Day (December 15), the Second Amendment Book Bomb was launched by the Independent Institute to communicate the importance of the Bill of Rights' Second Amendment for the protection of liberty. With your help, constitutional rights can be pushed to the top of national book bestseller lists, making a loud and clear statement that the Second Amendment right to arms is unalienable!

The Second Amendment Book Bomb follows on the heels of the truly 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 keep 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. (In this regard, President-elect Barack Obama's choice of Eric Holder for U.S. Attorney General is an ominous sign.) 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 the right to arms.

And now we have the tool to do so, the fascinating, seminal, and inspiring, new book, The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Rights to Bear Arms, by Stephen P. Halbrook. Dr. Halbrook is Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, has won three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, and 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. Dr. Halbrook's book is the perfect way to help family and friends fully understand the Second Amendment. The goal is to reach one million Americans with the book during the year ahead.

We are closing in on this goal, and with your help we can make Dr. Halbrook's book #1 on the bestseller lists. In addition to obtaining a copy for yourself, please consider getting additional copies for family members, friends, associates at work, community leaders, schools, libraries, journalists, policymakers, and others to use in order to promote a better understanding of the Second Amendment.

Already, The Founders' Second Amendment has skyrocketed to the following category rankings at Amazon.com:

#1: Law
#1: Civil Rights and Liberties
#1: Constitutions
#1: Constitutional Law
#1: Constitutional History
#1: Revolutionary and Founding History
#12: History
#11: Professional and Technical
#24: Nonfiction (all)

You can help make the book #1 overall at Amazon.com and elsewhere. Please go to the following web site and pledge to obtain at least one copy of the book, and then urge everyone you know to make their pledge ASAP:
