Proclaiming Liberty – Book Giveaway

This week I’m giving away 12 copies of Philip Mulivor’s new book:

About the book:

More than 130 key quotes vetted for accuracy—including nearly all the famous firearms-related remarks attributed to our Founders—by checking them word-for-word against original books and documents (many predating the Declaration of Independence). The book debunks several phony quotes and sets the record straight on dozens of others.  Several reproductions of title pages from antique books (Some are over 250 years old) which were used in the research are also included.

If you don’t think you’re lucky enough to win, or if you simply want to get your hands on a copy immediately you can place your order over at Amazon:

Buy the paperback for 12.95 or Kindle edition for $3.95.  Philip was nice enough to offer a 20% discount on the paperback edition using the discount code EFPPY7C5 for the length of the contest when you checkout of Amazon.

Giveaway rules:

1) You must be 18 or older
2) You must live in the United States

How to enter:

  • Easy.  Just leave ONE comment on this post.  Don’t reply to anyone.  More than one comment will disqualify you.
  • Use a valid email address so I can contact you if you win.  Your email address will not be used for anything else but notifying you of a win.

The Draw:

  • I’ll generate random numbers at random.org and that corresponding comment number wins a book.
  • You can only win one book.  It will be signed and shipped to you directly from the author once the contest is over.
  • Contest ends January 27, 2012

” Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people’s liberty teeth keystone… the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable… more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference. When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour. ”

We own a gun store and are always either correcting quotes or enlightening our customers with new ones. Thanks for this book.
