A Historical Perspective

E. David Quammen's site, GunShowOnTheNet, is an outstanding resource for the historical perspective on the right to keep and bear arms. If you want to know what the Founders, early presidents and the courts have said about the RKBA, E. David has the site for you.

In his post, Saul Cornell lies again...., E. David compares the pre-existent natural right of the individual British-American 'subject' before the Constitution with the dramatically improved natural right of the new American citizen after the Constitution. The "natural right" had not changed, just governments perception of it.

This is important reading, head on over and gain some perspective on history. While you are there, check out some of "Our Founders Documents" on the sidebar.
