In light of what The Community Organizer of Kenya has in store for those who believe the Founders knew what they were doing regarding the right to bear arms, there is an effort to have a massive book buy of Stephen Halbrook's book today to shoot up the ratings and send a message.
I don't have a recommendation, but I'm looking at the reviews to decide if it might make a good Christmas present.

I just ordered this book this AM. Looking forward to reading it.
I have a copy of the book and just started reading it. It looks like a good read, something along the line of history. Which is what I like.
BTW, I knew the author’s parents and siblings, although I have never met him. His parents were solid conservatives.
—bought mine about a month ago or I’d join the attempt—
Either your program is working, or Amazon is suppressing sales of it:-)
Just checked and they say it is not available, will put you on the waiting list....
Will Keep looking. I have a couple of other books by same author and they are very good.
