America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Concealed Carry

I wrote this letter to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette after reading that the University of Central Arkansas had decided to forbid faculty members and students from carrying concealed handguns. It was published today.
I see the University of Central Arkansas has chosen to prohibit concealed-carry of handguns.
Why would the school want to make the campus safe for the criminally minded? Nothing is more potentially dangerous than a gun-free zone.

I can only assume that whatever the number of students and faculty are, is the amount of victims the University is comfortable with.

How many ND's and "Accidental" Gun Deaths are you comfortable with?

I just saw your site and I agree with Sheldon Richman 100%. In fact, Mr Richman has intelligence and common sense.
