Btw, sorry if my post sounded like an "advertisement", that's just how it came out.

Tarn_Helm,

I've known of, and liked, Kopel from before, but found this series to be especially informative.

Thanks for the link!

Good find, and just for info, Kopel is indeed a big scholar in 2nd Amendment law, so you're definitely not advertising.

BTW, it took me "a while" to find out about Kopel, so many of you are ahead of me, then again, there was a time when I couldn't even spell Second Amendment, but I've always been kind of a late bloomer anyway... :o

Incidently, I'm working on a paper for my college work, and have been using references by him, and I would highly recommend that anyone who is in college or anywhere doing any kind of 2A project to use his work for guidance.

Erik.

Tarn_Helm,

Glad to help a fellow Second Amendment practitioner build his conceptual arsenal and his skill at defending our right of self-defense.

This (http://www.guncite.com/) as well is a treasure house of information.

The title at the top of the webpage says, "Gun Control," but the site offers information on much more than that: history, law, links to primary sources, current events in Second Amendment "scholarship" (i.e., fraud perpetrated by anti-Second Amendment historians (http://www.guncite.com/gun_control_bellesiles.html)), etc.

Dig in.

The more we know, the more intelligently we can defend our positions, the harder it is for the anti-Second Amendment herd to mischaracterize us with damaging stereotypes such as "ignorant redneck" and so on.

We are in a battle of wits with them.

Let's go into battle more heavily armed and with argumentation skills superior to those of the enemy, foreign or domestic.

Carry on.

That is all.
:cool:
