SHOUT OUT: Second Amendment Book Bomb!

Don't usually do these, but this one really excites me! Not much time to get involved so decide right now to help

h/t Pax Parabellum

According to the originator ...
Second Amendment BookDecember 15 marks America’s Bill of Rights Day, the anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. To commemorate this event, we have created the Second Amendment Book Bomb [read about the book below], a unique and powerful way to communicate the importance of the Bill of Rights’ Second Amendment for the protection of liberty. With your help, we can launch constitutional rights to the top of national book bestseller lists, making a loud and clear statement that Second Amendment rights are inalienable!
The goal as presented ...
The Second Amendment won a historic victory on June 26, 2008, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own and bear arms. To secure that right, however, the American public must be made aware of the reasons why the Founders sought to protect this right.

The goal of the Second Amendment Book Bomb is to help educate more Americans about this right, informing one million Americans about Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook’s remarkable book, The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms, during the 2008 Holiday Season and throughout the New Year ahead.
About NOON today ...
Halbrook's book [was] up to No. 327. ... Amazon [is] sold out, and they said a resupply is being shipped today, and should be available to fill orders within a couple of days.
The book and author ...
The renowned Second Amendment scholar and lawyer Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook, Research Fellow at The Independent Institute, was key to the Heller victory—as well as to three previous gun-rights victories in cases before the Supreme Court. And his definitive defense of the Second Amendment is now available in The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms the first in-depth, book-length account of the origins of the Second Amendment and the most readable, comprehensive, and compelling work ever assembled arguing that the right to own a gun is as fundamental under the U.S. Constitution as freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
What you can do ...
Let’s make the Second Amendment Book Bomb a publishing phenomenon so great that even the mainstream media will have to take notice. Let’s spread The Founders’ Second Amendment so far and wide that Americans across the political spectrum, and all walks of life, will be discussing the Second Amendment in every possible venue.

With your help, we can make Stephen Halbrook’s book #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. To make this happen, please pledge to buy at least one copy of the book before or on the December 15th Second Amendment Book Bomb date (or even afterward, if this is your only option), and then spread the word to others. Let’s make this the most amazing and explosive event ever on the right to bear arms, and declare in no uncertain terms that the Second Amendment will be around for a very long time to come.

You're on your own; I'll order my copy as soon as this post leaves my harddrive.
