About the Book

Shotgun Republic deconstructs both the Second amendment, the legal reasons behind it and carefully examines the issues of the current gun control debate. The issues of gun control, universal background checks, restrictions and taxation on bullets and magazines as well as a short history of the 2nd Amendment’s reasons are in this thumbnail debate of the right to keep and bear arms. Why are restrictions being placed on arms when crime is at an all time low? How does the restrictions placed on magazine size infringe our rights to defend oneself? Why does a universal background check place our rights at risk? These questions and more are answered in this thumbnail guide to the 2nd Amendment.
