stonewalker was just talking about this today while we were out volunteering to kick anti gun brady campaign anti civil rights Kevin McCarty out of city council in Sacramento.

I'd like to pick one up, but man that is pricey. damn textbook prices.

Check out ivoices.org - they are doing a podcast series with David Kopel. Each podcast goes over one chapter and I believe they are going to go through the whole book. I'm on chapter 2 now, but at this point I want to buy the book. I'm very impressed with it so far

Just got the book today. There are four chapters 12-15 that are online. This is a nice comprehensive look at the past history and case law for RKBA's (by that I mean for somebody that has NEVER done any research and this will be their first introduction). I think that we now need to mandate that each student take a class on it.

If you just want a book about the origins of the 2nd Amendment you can get this one for a reasonable price:

To Keep and Bear Arms: The Origins of an Anglo-American Right [Paperback]
Joyce Lee Malcolm, 1996
http://www.amazon.com/Keep-Bear-Arms-Origins-Anglo-American/dp/0674893077/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1337750579&sr=1-3
