The Heller Case

$24.95 + tax
by Alan Korwin and David B. Kopel

The enduring reference guide to D.C. v. Heller!
This "first edition of history" captures the excitement, the anticipation and all the details of the most important gun-rights case ever to reach the U.S. Supreme Court. The decision was close - 5 to 4 - but the result was monumental: Gun rights Americans have exercised and enjoyed since the nation's founding were preserved by a single vote.
  • The right to keep and bear arms belongs to individual people, it existed before the Constitution was adopted, and does not depend on militia or other group membership.
  • Self defense is a "core," "inherent" and "natural" human right, and handguns are "the quintessential self-defense weapon."
  • "Collective rights" arguments are bogus and are out of the debate.
  • D.C.'s total handgun ban is unconstitutional and is overturned.
  • RKBA is a "specific enumerated right" on par with free speech.
