|A Citizen's Guidebook to the History, Sources, and Authorities for the
Constitutional Guarantee of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
The Second Amendment Primer by Les Adams is a simple yet essential guide to understanding your Second Amendment freedoms. So much of the debate about the Second Amendment is in scholarly
journals and academic papers written by scholars and judges, that is directed
towards other scholars, law professors, attorneys, and judges. Trying
to wade through the extensive footnotes and references to legal cases
and historical precedents known only to the academic elite is more than
enough to make anyone feel hopeless.
With The Second Amendment Primer,
Les Adams finally provides an accessible discussion of the Second
Amendment. It is a “primer” because it is elementary. Chronologically
arranged, it traces the development of the right to keep and bear arms
from its birth in ancient Greece to its addition in the U.S.
Constitution. Supplemental essays discuss the Second Amendment’s
interpretation in today’s world from the viewpoints of both firearms
enthusiasts as well as those who would limit the amendment’s purview. Published in durable, paperback format that features a convenient smaller size so you can take this important information wherever you go.
Although The Second Amendment Primer
is aimed at the average reader, Adams’ facts are detailed and
well-documented. Reference margin notes, an extensive bibliography, and a
comprehensive subject index showcase the author’s research and show
more curious readers how to continue on their path to understanding
exactly what the Second Amendment is saying. Using this “citizen’s
guide” as a stepping stone, anyone can become a successful scholar of
the right to bear arms.
