    Kopel is one of the good guys. Decent research, decent head on his shoulders. At 48pp, I'd imagine this book's going to be short and sweet. Hopefully it makes the points well.

    Who is sovereign in the United States? Is it the people themselves, or is it an elite determined to rule citizens who are seen as incapable of making choices about their own lives? This is the central question in the American gun-control debate.

    In this Broadside, David Kopel explains why the right to keep and bear arms has always been central to the American identity Ė and why Americans have always resisted gun control. The American Revolution was sparked by British attempts to confiscate guns. After the Civil War, the U.S. changed the Constitution to defeat the nationís first gun-control organization, the Ku Klux Klan. When Hitler and Stalin demonstrated how gun registration paves the way for gun confiscation, which paves the way for genocide, Americans resolved to make sure it never happens here.

    ^I can't add^^^^^^^^^

    a dang thing to what ccw9mm said.

    Kopel, and a handful of others have more understanding and knowledge of the Constitution, and more specifically the Second Amendment than ANY of the boobs in Washington posing as an elected official.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!
