The Latest On The Second Amendment Book Bomb

Friday, February 6, 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 Second Amendment for the protection of liberty. With your help, constitutional rights can continue to be pushed to the top of national book bestseller lists, making a loud and clear statement that our 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.  The Heller ruling was immediately attacked, however, and efforts continue on the national level and across the country to undermine gun rights. 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 inspiring new book The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Rights to Bear Arms, by Stephen P. Halbrook. The goal is to reach one million Americans with this book in the year ahead.

You can help make The Founders' Second Amendment a #1 bestseller!  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:
