The Latest On The Second Amendment Book Bomb

Friday, January 30, 2009

On Monday, February 2, the Senate is scheduled to vote on the confirmation of Barack Obama's choice of gun-control advocate Eric Holder for Attorney General of the U.S. (please see Independent Institute Research Fellow Dr. Stephen Halbrook's superb article, "Don't Confirm Holder" (Human Events, Jan. 29).  Please also see the C-SPAN video of Dr. Halbrook on January 16 before the Senate Judiciary Committee, testifying against the confirmation of Holder.  Finally, Dr. Halbrook's full written testimony is available here). 

Dr. Halbrook's recent book, The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms has formed the basis for the Second Amendment Book Bomb, as well as his earlier Amici Curiae Brief in the landmark Supreme Court case of District of Columbia v. Heller on behalf of 55 members of the Senate, the Senate President, and 250 members of the House of Representatives. 

The Second Amendment Book Bomb campaign began on Bill of Rights Day, December 15, and the goal is to reach one million Americans with Dr. Halbrook's book in the New Year. 

With the threat of the Holder nomination, all gun owners are strongly encouraged to pledge today at the Second Amendment Book Bomb.  In doing so, we can send a loud and clear message that Second Amendment rights are unalienable by making The Founders' Second Amendment a #1 bestseller!
