Publisher's Summary

Gun control: Do we need it or not?  

If there’s one thing that a lot of people around the world know about the US it’s that Americans love guns. Depending on who you are this might be a source of pride; knowing that your country provides you with the ultimate freedom to preserve life and liberty. For others it’s a source of shame that even while being the richest nation in the world, it doesn’t come close to having the same level of gun control as many "Third World" nations.

This is where this book on gun control comes in. Here you will be given an insightful look into the world of firearms and gun control. Understanding the true nature of gun violence in the US is as much about developing the ability to think about the statistics and society as it is determining whether we should be allowing people firearms or to take them away completely.

How can we realistically reduce gun crime and stop headlines about another school shooting?

Strongly biased.

The book is loaded with inflammatory phrases and words like "autoloading execution machines", "vicious weapons", "slaughtered". Other right expressly mentioned in the Bill of Rights are properly referred to as "rights" but the right to keep and bear arms is referred to as a "privilege". Statistics of death and injuries involving firearms refer to adolescents in their late teens as "children".

There was other weirdness in his wordings as well. Such as referring to "metal finders" instead of "metal detectors". There was something a little weird, "off", or completely wrong with nearly everything he said.

Not the easiest to follow

Lots of facts and good perspectives. However I didn’t find the flow logical. One chapter just stated 40 things gun control advocates say, but the author then moved on. Not sure what I as the reader was supposed to do with that.

Useful Book...

It reveals how some gun owners are very apt to scrutinize the behavior of others who may act in poor regard, yet also recommend betterment of those individuals. Safety is key, and so is examining the fabric of our nation and how current events seek to overthrow age-old concepts of morality.
