This book collects the blog's best posts dealing with Second Amendment issues since its inception in 2008 through 2013. In these pages you will read about the history and philosophy behind the Second Amendment, Iowa's struggle to become a "shall-issue" state, gun training and selection, and the gun politics in the state.
