"Gunfight" promises to be a seminal work in its examination of America's four-centuries-long political battle over gun control and the right to bear arms. Winkler uses the landmark 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller, which invalidated a law banning handguns in the nation's capital, as a springboard for a groundbreaking historical narrative.
