Description
In June 2008, the Supreme Court had its first opportunity in seven decades to decide a question at the heart of one of America's most impassioned debates: Do Americans have a right to possess guns? Gun Control on Trial tells the full story of the Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which ended the District's gun ban. With exclusive behind-the-scenes access throughout the process, author Brian Doherty is uniquely positioned to delve into the issues of this monumental case and provides compelling looks at the inside stories, including the plaintiffs' fight for the right to protect their lives, the activist lawyers who worked to affirm that right, and the forces who fought to stop the case.
