This chapter focuses on the Jeffersonian era. The Jeffersonian era not only helped transform the meaning in law of self-defense, but also tested the limits of the revived states' rights theory of the Second Amendment that had helped secure Jefferson the presidency. The Jeffersonian era also produced the first Supreme Court decision in the new nation's history to cite the Second Amendment.

Keywords:   Jeffersonian era, political violence, Federalists, Republicans, Second Amendment
