This book is a collection of 15 essays on the constitutional rights associated with the Second Amendment. Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, has assembled a collection of writings for Americans who are concerned with the erosion of their basic civil liberties, providing a historic background on how these fundamental rights can be protected from an ever-increasing government. This book is a welcomed addition to Larry Pratt’s 1990 little jewel, Armed People Victorious, that recounts the stories of how two countries as dissimilar as Guatemala and the Philippines, teetering on the brink of disaster, turned defeat into victory when the governments recognized that allowing and encouraging the people to form armed militia to protect themselves, their families, and their villages from communist insurgents in the 1980s helped to preserve their freedom.
Safeguarding Liberty: The Constitution and Citizen Militias will point out the relevancy of the Second Amendment in modern society. This volume should be perused by concerned citizens who abhor violence and crime, and cherish the freedom enshrined in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
