The Second Amendment to the Constitution, often abbreviated as "the right to bear arms," is the subject of fierce national debate. The Third Amendment-the right not to quarter soldiers-has attracted little interest in recent years but was no less important to the citizens of the United States when it was added to the Bill of Rights. Written in a clear and accessible manner, this book explores the many issues surrounding these two amendments.

Topics include:

  • The colonists' struggle against Great Britain and the minutemen's challenge by taking up arms against the Crown
  • Supreme Court and lower court rulings related to gun control
  • The relationship between guns and crime, suicide, assassination, and accidents
  • The role played by weapons as settlers moved westward and tamed the frontier
  • The rights claimed by hunters today
  • The view of gun control advocates along with those of individuals who oppose gun control
  • and more.

Book Description Facts on File Inc, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. American democracy owes much to the rights guaranteed to individuals in the U.S. Constitution and specifically in its first 10 amendments, known as the Bill of Rights. Each book in the new six-volume American Rights set provides the history of a specific right or rights, from the right to vote to the right to bear arms. The volumes begin with brief colonial history, discussing the war fought by American Revolutionaries to gain independence from Great Britain - and their opportunity to decide what rights every American should possess. Coverage also includes later and ongoing struggles by groups such as women and people of color to gain these rights - both in law and in practice. Students will learn to appreciate the value of these rights by reading of the battles fought to secure them and, in some cases, by learning of their relative rarity around the world. Graphs, maps, photographs, and box features enhance the lively and accessible narrative, calling out important details and bringing this exciting material to life. Providing a wealth of information, American Rights is a thought-provoking, must-have set perfect for the young readers of today. Seller Inventory # AAN9780816056668
