I'm a bit of a history buff, and finding myself more and more interested in reading up on the Second Amendment and the historical basis for it.
I'm curious to know if anyone has any recommendations for some good books on the subject?
18th-century American history is a good start, but even going back further, into the 17th century and it's basis English law would be good.
A friend of mine likes to couch the discussion within the context of basic property rights. A well-written analysis of that would be ideal.
