Funny. Looks to me like the outline and language was lifted from an October 2017 podcast by More Perfect called The Gun Show. I didn't read the book.

That was my interpretation of the podcast too. I particularly enjoyed the conclusion that because there were no supreme court cases relating to the 2nd amendment until Heller (ignore Miller I guess), that obviously everyone knew it was a "collective right." My interpretation was the exact opposite: everyone knew it was an "individual right." Seemed obvious to me that the NFA essentially says - we can't ban these weapons, but we can tax and regulate them to oblivion.

I enjoyed the podcast, but I think it's selectively recounting history.
