Clayton Cramer is a history professor who has written for National Review and for the NRA's American Rifleman. His new book, Armed America, is the true story of our nation's love affair with firearms. Cramer debunks myths and takes us along a winding historical trail full of surprising revelations and riveting anecdotes, explaining the roots of America's gun culture.
The biggest myth of them all—and you hear this a lot these days—is that our ancestors didn't really have that many guns; that those they did own were strictly for putting food on the table. Cramer shows that this is simply not true, which is why the right to bear arms is a constitutional right. The book includes a glossary of early-American firearms.
