He also took some time to speak with America's 1st Freedom Editor in Chief Frank Miniter about this issue and more.

Halbrook is also the author of 10 books, including The Right to Bear Arms: A Constitutional Right of the People or a Privilege of the Ruling Class? For more on him and his work, visit stephenhalbrook.com.
