Gunfight: the battle over the right to bear arms in America.

Author Adam Winkler uses the landmark 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller, which invalidated a law banning handguns in the nation's capital, as a springboard for a historical narrative of America's four-centuries-long political battle over gun control and the right to bear arms.
