Beginning on America’s Bill of Rights Day (December 15), the Second Amendment
Book Bomb was launched by the Independent Institute to communicate the
importance of the Bill of Rights’ Second Amendment for the protection of
liberty. With your help, constitutional rights can be pushed to the top of
national book bestseller lists, making a loud and clear statement that Second
Amendment rights are unalienable!

The Second Amendment Book Bomb follows directly on the heels of the truly
historic victory on June 26, 2008 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the
landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment
protects an individual right to own and bear arms. However, the Heller ruling
was immediately attacked and efforts continue on the national level and across
the country to undermine gun rights. (In this regard, President-elect Barack
Obama's choice of Eric Holder for U.S. Attorney General is an ominous sign.)

Therefore, to secure the Second Amendment now and for the future the American
public must be made aware of the reasons why the Founders sought to protect
this right.

And now we have the tool to do so: ¬the fascinating, seminal, and inspiring,
new book, The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Rights to Bear Arms,
by Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook, a research fellow at the Independent Institute who
has won three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s ¬the perfect way both
to educate ourselves and to reach friends and family who don’t yet understand
Second Amendment rights.

The goal is to reach one million Americans with Dr. Halbrook’s book during the
holiday season and throughout the New Year ahead.

As a result, we are closing in on reaching this goal and with your help we can
make Dr. Halbrook’s book #1 on the bestseller lists. In addition to buying a
copy for yourself, please consider buying additional copies for family members,
friends, associates at work, community leaders, schools, libraries,
journalists, policymakers, and others to use in order to spread the ideas of
the Second Amendment.

Already, The Founders’ Second Amendment has skyrocketed to the following
category rankings at Amazon.com:

#1: Law
#1: Civil Rights and Liberties
#1: Constitutions
#1: Constitutional Law
#1: Constitutional History
#1: Revolutionary and Founding History
#12: History
#11: Professional and Technical

Hence, we are seeking your help now in pushing a second surge to make the book
#1 overall at Amazon.com and elsewhere. Please go to the following web site and
pledge to buy at least one copy of the book, and then urge everyone you know to
make their pledge ASAP.
