The Heller Case: Gun Rights Affirmed
"The enduring reference guide to the most important gun-rights case ever heard at the U.S. Supreme Court, District of Columbia v. Heller (2008). The Heller Case: Gun Rights Affirmed! is the very first book on the subject, on press just two months after the decision was announced. Captures all the original history that will control the gun-rights debate for decades to come. Includes the events from how it all started to eyewitness reports from inside the courtroom -- to the earliest post-case legal briefs, lawsuits, gun-rights theories, statements from officials and news-media coverage following the landmark decision. Incorporates a thorough description of every gun case the High Court has ever heard -- all 96 -- including 16 amazing self-defense cases rarely mentioned publicly. Anti-rights activists are planning creative interpretations of the decision to continue their disarm-America campaign. That's in here too. Plus, all 67 friend-of-the-court briefs are carefully summarized, and 20 leading Second Amendment experts have contributed essays discussing the case and its implications, including Alan Gura (lead attorney for Heller), Bob Levy (lawsuit sponsor), Don Kates, Eugene Volokh, Glenn Reynolds, Bob Cottrol, David Hardy, Clayton Cramer, Joyce Lee Malcolm, Sandy Froman, Chuck Michel, more. Lead authors Alan Korwin and Dave Kopel have penned groundbreaking analyses and descriptions of the case. Two controversial contrarian essays suggest the Heller case could lead to the end of the right to keep and bear arms. This is the first edition of history by the nation's leading publisher of gun-law books, Bloomfield Press (gunlaws.com)."
