It’s time to talk about guns. (In America, it’s always time to talk about guns.) Waldman’s new book, The Second Amendment: A Biography, provides an opportunity to have that conversation, with much-needed historical context. Waldman investigates the love affair between America and guns, and he finds that the Second Amendment, in fewer than 30 words, inspired an argument that has continued for the entire life of this country. What did the Founding Fathers intend us to do with our guns? Does it even matter what the Founding Fathers intended? Most important: How do we solve this problem?
