The most important statements ever made on the right to bear arms, all in one powerful book.
Proclaiming Liberty is the perfect reference book for gun rights authors, speakers, bloggers, and political activists—and everyone interested in Second Amendment freedoms.
“The Web is littered with false or inaccurate quotations about the right to arms, and I felt the time had come to take out the trash,” said author Philip Mulivor. “I vetted more than 130 key quotes—including nearly all the famous firearms-related remarks attributed to our Founders—by checking them word-for-word against original books and manuscripts. Many of those sources predate the Declaration of Independence."
The book debunks several phony quotes and sets the record straight on dozens of others. Included are reproductions of title pages from centuries-old books used in the author's research.
To many readers, though, the real value of the book may be contained in the detailed citations for each quote. All citations appear in MLA format for the benefit of students.
The right to keep and bear arms is America’s most important conversation, and historic quotes are a critical part of the gun rights dialogue. Proclaiming Liberty is a powerful tool for anyone who engages in that debate.
Philip Mulivor is a Second Amendment scholar, writer and speaker. He currently serves as the director of media relations for Ohioans for Concealed Carry, a non-profit organization representing Ohio's 260,000 concealed-handgun licensees. Mulivor is an NRA-certified pistol instructor and range safety officer, and was named "Distinguished Expert in Handgun" by the NRA-Winchester Marksmanship Qualification Program in 2009. Mulivor has provided personal firearms instruction to Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and other prominent Americans.
As a writer and radio news commentator specializing in privacy issues, he was elected in 1992 to the National Press Club of Washington, DC., the nation’s foremost association of print and broadcast journalists. Mulivor's 1993 article in the American Journalism Review was the first to examine the Internet as a means to compile evidence of government corruption.
