"To Keep And Bear Arms," by Joyce Lee Malcolm. A very good historian, and someone who will walk you through the old English common law right to self defense and keeping of arms, and right through the founders' thinking when they wrote the 2A.

She, by the way, is "the nice girl who saved the second amendment," by providing some of the central research and documentation that helped Heller go the way it did. She's the unsung hero that helped us all dodge a huge counter-constitutional freight train if we'd lost Heller.

The second volume is a compend of texts from primary documents cited in the first volume. These volumes aren't cheap, but they're worth it. Young was cited by 23 parties filing amicus briefs in Heller--on both sides of the issue! Young's discussion is deep and broad. The historical texts quoted are invaluable. These volumes are like buying high end optics--"buy the best, cry once."

A valuable secondary volume is Stephen P. Halbrook's The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms.
Some great recommendations, thanks! Just picked up Stephen Halbrook's book. I will look to add the others as well.
