Exploring The Second Amendment Of The US Constitution

Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of A Right to Bear Arms?: What were the Founders Thinking?. Authored by Gerald Petersen, this book is a comprehensive look into the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

A Right to Bear Arms?: What Were the Founders Thinking? is an inquiry into the historical derivation and meaning of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. This book attempts to find the answers to many questions relating to the Second Amendment such as "Why was this amendment written the way it was?", "What were the fears and feelings of the Founders?", "What role did the states play in the development of the Second Amendment?", "How are our natural rights affected by the Second Amendment and what is the responsibility of the people and the government in protecting these rights?", and "How did the Supreme Court's interpretation regarding this amendment change over the years?". The answers to these questions will reveal the meaning of the Second Amendment.

Skillfully written and truly enlightening, A Right to Bear Arms?: What Were the Founders Thinking? is one masterpiece that will help readers understand the history of America and the Constitution. Available in paperback, hardback, and eBook formats, this is a perfect addition to anyone's bookshelf.

About the Author Gerald Petersen earned a bachelor's degree and master's degree in economics with an undergraduate minor in history. A veteran of service in Vietnam on board a destroyer in the United States Navy, he thinks of himself as a "tin-can sailor." Retiring after a varied career with financial institutions, a university, small business ownership, and the Department of Defense, Mr. Petersen now had the time to do the research to find answers to a myriad of questions which in turn led to the writing of this book. This is only the beginning in his quest to learn more about the American heritage.
