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?

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.

We highly recommend this book

Everything is covered from gun culture in America to strategies of both sides of the gun issue. There was also a lot of technical information about guns themselves. I highly recommend reading this book and drawing your own conclusions.

Thanks to author.

Unfortunately this is one of the topics that find very few venues for actual debate and you usually end up with tangential bluster about mental health (which is certainly a concern but is used as a smoke screen so that, by attacking the mental health profession the debate switches to a different topic) or historical events and debates that only tangentially touch on the topic as it stands today.

YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Along the way, he provides relevant facts, history, law, social science, and analyses in clear, jargon-free prose. Anyone interested in the realities of gun violence in America and what might be done about them will learn much from this book – including NRA members who want to know whether their organization is telling the truth.

One the best self-help books I've read

He reframes the gun issue using scientific research and insights gained from many debates with corporate gun lobbyists. James crystal-clear prose combined with his unassailable logic make this book a joy to read.

Brilliant guide!

This is not a polemic but it is an intelligent examination that can lead to advocacy of a reasoned sort. Well written as well. Easy to digest in small bites.

Almost neutral

Objective facts on a sometimes controversial topic. We're always able to deal with issues significantly better if we can get through the static and are equipped with non-partisan facts.

GUN CONTROL

Fair and balanced tratment of a serious problem. As for "anti-gun bias" (a charge that appears in some of the unfavorable reviews), the authors aren't anti-hunter, but they do offer strong arguments to support common sense gun control -- what is fast becoming a historical artifact.
