    2A & other rights related residing materials

    I've noticed a lot of books referenced that are related to various amendments but then when I get time to come back and find them they are lost in the void.

    So, does anyone have any good "rights" books they recommend? Doesn't matter which side of the aisle the authors are on.
    "The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism." - George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796

    "The Citizen's Constitution: An Annotated Guide," Seth Lipsky. I had both of my early teen kids read it. (after I reade it of course...just to make sure). This book is not 2nd Amendment related specifically but a general overview of the whole of the Constitution.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    I have struggled through some John Locke, much of our constitution is based on him I think I might have to break him down into smaller books to assimilate his thoughts better though.

    I can't really stand the socialists on the left or the right, so good books on how rights have been trampled are "Who killed the constitution" by Woods and Gutzman, The Tyranny of good Intentions by Roberts and Stratton.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    If someone is going to read Locke, or any other philosopher, they really should have a notebook at their side to write down thoughts that come-up during the read, and also write ideas that you have regarding what you read.

    It always takes me forever to read through a book because nearly every paragraph I read, I have a half a page of notes.

    The reason I recommended a modern-day book that describes the Constitution is because some people aren't acclimated to reading Locke, Homer, Mills, Kant, Dworkin, Hart, Schopenhauer, etc. **(Don't mistaken any of my examples as a statement that I agree with any of their philosophical stances)

    Notebook not a bad Idea, I can highlight and make notes on my e-reader but kinda cumbersome to tap out my thoughts....

    I have a e-reader as well. I love my reader but note-taking is a pain in the freaking a$$! The reason I got the reader is it is exclusively a reader; well, the wi-fii isn't worth crap, thank goodness. I don't read book on my laptop, it's impossible, to many distractions.

    Still have a notebook when e-reading, I do highlight lines though, and document any thoughts hard copy. I have the new Kindle reader.

    One of the best is Malcolm's "To Keep and Bear Arms: The Origins of an Anglo-American Right"

    See: http://www.amazon.com/Keep-Bear-Arms.../dp/0674893077

    And Cramer's "For the Defense of Themselves and the State: The Original Intent and Judicial Interpretation of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms"

    See: http://www.amazon.com/For-Defense-Th...1571066&sr=1-1
