Thomas Jefferson once warned, "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." To heed Jefferson's warning, we need to understand what has happened to the U.S. Bill of Rights. This is what "Saving the Bill of Rights" will do for you as it powerfully exposes what our individual rights were originally written to protect and details how to win back our vanishing rights.

This is why Wayne LaPierre, NRA Executive Vice President, said, "True appreciation for freedom's value requires recognition of its fragility. "Saving the Bill of Rights" deserves a place in every American home, classroom and courthouse."

"Saving the Bill of Rights" digs beneath the headlines and destroys all the arguments from the gun-hating Left, but this book also uncovers what has happened to each of the 10 amendments to the U.S. Bill of Rights and exposes what we can do to get our rights back.

From the First Amendment's protection of free speech, to the Fourth Amendment's protection of our privacy, to the Tenth Amendment's mandate that the U.S. government be restricted to powers listed in the U.S. Constitution, this book is a dramatic, eye-opening read that will teach you everything you need to know to retain and regain your rights in this age of out-of-control government.

Even better you don't need a law degree to understand "Saving the Bill of Rights." This book clearly explains the precedent-setting cases and the original intent of the Founders as it conveys what we need to do to get all our rights back from an often overzealous government.

This is why bestselling novelist Stephen Hunter said, "Clearly written, and propelled by vivid anecdotes to put a human face on the principles of law, Frank Miniter's superb argument in favor of our most basic rights and the document that sustains them, shouldn't be necessary...but it is."
