“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” (The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution Adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the remaining nine amendments comprising the Bill of Rights.) What does the language mean? Where did it come from? How should it be interpreted? Does it create a right of average citizens to own and possess firearms? Can a government, intent upon subjugating the people, strip the right away? What is the “militia”? Does it still exist? Must we be members of such a militia in order to protect our ability to arm ourselves for personal protection? How does the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution relate to American gun rights? The Second Amendment and the American Gun – A Right Under Siege” is a book written by a lawyer, but written specifically for the average American citizen, not schooled in the law, or a Constitutional scholar. It explains the history of the Second Amendment and its surprising origin. It introduces the reader to people he or she has likely never heard of who figure so prominently in the amendments evolution and history, as well as the history of this country. It summarizes the case law that has evolved around the Second Amendment, including a very early opinion issued by the Unites States Supreme Court that holds that the Second Amendment does not create the right of average law-abiding citizens to own and posses firearms, but merely protects a pre-existing right to do so. Whether you value the Second Amendment, or believe that it is no longer necessary in our modern world, you need to read this book. The Founders of our nation reach out to you with their words, explaining their thoughts, their beliefs and their reasons for creating the Amendment in the first place. At this time in our nation’s history, an understanding of the history and evolution of this Amendment is needed as never before.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Der Berg-Karabach-Konflikt

Eine juristische Analyse

Author: Heiko Krüger

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 142

Der Band beschäftigt sich mit den rechtlichen Aspekten des Konflikts um Berg-Karabach. Aktuelle Entwicklungen machen deutlich, dass die juristischen Aspekte von Sezessionskonflikten sukzessive verwischen und auch im Rahmen internationaler Konfliktlösungsbemühungen ins Hintertreffen geraten. Die umstrittene Anerkennung des Kosovo durch zahlreiche Staaten im Jahr 2008 sowie die Anerkennung Abchasiens und Südossetiens durch Russland sind zwei Beispiele dafür. Ziel des Autors ist es, die Aufmerksamkeit stärker auf die rechtlichen Positionen zu lenken.
