9781479325023: An Act of Bravery: Otis W. McDonald and the Second Amendment

Otis McDonald, born and raised amidst the hardships of sharecropping in the cotton fields of Fort Necessity, Louisiana, overcame poverty and social prejudice to become the first in his family to earn a college degree and rise to the relative comfort of America’s middle class. With drug and gang activity on the rise in Chicago, McDonald’s home has become increasingly threatened by violent crime. With no other intent but to defend his family against life-threatening intrusion, McDonald encounters the dichotomy of gun-wielding criminals and a Chicago statute limiting the purchase of handguns. As lead petitioner in a Supreme Court case against the City of Chicago, McDonald is the unlikely candidate to challenge local jurisprudence against the Second Amendment. How does the Constitution protect this country’s citizens and which citizens are being protected?
