Selected Bibliography

Herewith a very selected list of some of the books I found most helpful in understanding the legal and historical background of the Heller case and the history and practice of gun regulation in America. Not listed, but probably most important, are all the briefs filed in the case itself, which themselves give a full education on all the subjects and controversies surrounding the Second Amendment. They are all available at http://www.dcguncase.com/blog/casefilings/.
