The samurai, the mountie, and the cowboy : should America adopt the gun controls of other democracies? by David B Kopel( Book )

Guns : who should have them?( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing amount of violence in the United States in recent years has led to measures to control gun purchases and limit their availability. Against the arguments of gun-control lobbyists, who want to further decrease the number of weapons, or even ban guns altogether, are the voices of those who contend that gun bans are unrealistic solutions to crime, and serve only to deny a valid form of self-defense to law-abiding citizens. Going beyond the emotional appeals and stilted rhetoric on gun control, Guns: Who Should Have Them? tackles the problems in a straightforward, intelligent manner. Each chapter in this powerful volume, written by leading experts in law, criminology, medicine, psychiatry, and feminist studies, addresses a major issue in the gun-control debate. The conclusions of this carefully detailed and superbly argued study are difficult to deny: "gun control" is a red herring that has been deflecting attention from the true causes of crime, namely, the breakdown of the family; failed social welfare programs; and increasing hopelessness among male youths, especially in our troubled inner cities
No more Wacos : what's wrong with Federal law enforcement and how to fix it by David B Kopel( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author contends that incidents at Waco and Ruby Ridge "represent the worst-case scenario of problems that now plague federal law enforcement, including its militarization, judicial rubberstamping of search and arrest applications, aggressive and violent arrest procedures, indifference to religious beliefs, the complicity of an overzealous media, and failed congressional investigations."--Jacket

A conspiracy against Obamacare : the Volokh conspiracy and the health care case by Randy E Barnett( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The debate over the Affordable Care Act was one of the most important and public examinations of the Constitution in our history. At the forefront of that debate were the legal scholars blogging at the Volokh Conspiracy, who engaged in a spirited, erudite, and accessible discussion of the legal issues involved in the cases. Several of the Volokh bloggers played key roles in developing the constitutional arguments against the ACA. It was perhaps the first time that a blog affected arguments submitted to the United States on a major issue. This book compiles the discussion that unfolded at the Volokh Conspiracy blog into a readable narrative, enhanced with new context and analysis, as the contributors reflect on the Obamacare litigation with the advantage of hindsight. The different bloggers certainly did not always agree with each other, but the back-and-forth debates provide momentum as the reader follows the development of the arguments over time. A Conspiracy Against Obamacare exemplifies an important new form of legal discourse and public intellectualism"--Unedited summary from book cover

Who is sovereign in the United States? Is it the people themselves, or is it an elite determined to rule citizens who are seen as incapable of making choices about their own lives?
