Description


The book analyzes the words "infringe" and "abridge" to boost an accurate understanding of the Second Amendment. The wording of the first and second amendments was shaped by the period when the Bill of Rights was created by the authors and ratified by the states and also by previous centuries of English usage. The language of 1789 should be an important element in the ongoing discussion of gun control politics, a crucial issue for the people and the courts.
