An Act of Bravery: Otis W. McDonald and the Second Amendment

USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Otis McDonald, born and raised amidst the hardships of sharecropping in the cotton fields of Fort Necessity, Louisiana, overcame poverty and social prejudice to become the first in his family to earn a college degree and rise to the relative comfort of America's middle class.

With no other intent but to defend his family against life-threatening intrusion, McDonald encounters the dichotomy of gun-wielding criminals and a Chicago statute limiting the purchase of handguns.

An Act of Bravery: Otis W. McDonald and the Second Amendment, co-authored by Sue Bowron and Frederick Jones, is a true American story of an “ordinary” man and his victory over seemingly insurmountable odds.

“Like Dred Scott and Homer Plessy, the name Otis McDonald will be remembered for as long as people study the American Constitution. His battle to preserve his right to bear arms led to a landmark Supreme Court decision and profoundly shaped the law.” Adam Winkler, Author, Gunfight: The Battle over the Right to Bear Arms in America, Professor, UCLA School of Law.
