Documentation of founders' intent

As some of you may have read, I intend to build a website/forum to educate and convert the left with regard to 2nd amendment rights. One of the first and main points of argument I will be making are the founders' statements of intent that the 2nd amendment is 1) an individual, not a collective right and 2) is intended to ensure the ability to overthrow a tyrannical government.

I'm trying to collate all original references to these arguments, along with a full and correct bibliography. I'd be grateful for any information or websites you guys know about.

thanks,

ishi

Ishi, in support of your admirable intent, please try

Googling "journals of the continental congress". It's a long and boring read, what with all the jockeying and counter-suggesting, but it'll give you the real basis for what and how things were arived at. (I know, that's not grammatical, but to paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill, "That is the sort of criticism up with which I will not put".)

At any rate, those recordings and the resultant and contributory Federalist (not to ignore the Anti-Federalist) Papers should give you ample fodder for your guns. And much more complete than the Federalist Papers alone.

Federalist Papers Book

This is a very easy to read version of the papers.
Nothing changed, just easier to understand and fully indexed.
