The September Ideas on Liberty has my article, "Michael Bellesiles and Guns in the Early Republic." This is an article in which I examine Bellesiles's claim that "eighty travel accounts written in America from 1750 to 1860 indicate that the travelers did not notice that they were surrounded by guns and violence."

Unfortunately, it's not up on their website yet--I'm not quite sure how it will be before it is. In the meantime, I can at least bask in the glow of demonstrating the Professor Bellesiles's reading problem is, shall we say, rather severe. (Or is that glow Professor Bellesiles's reputation going up in smoke?)
