If there's one thing most of the world knows about the USA it's that we 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, despite being the richest nation in the world, the USA doesn't even have the same level of gun regulations as many third world nations.
No matter how you feel about guns - knowing what to do about them is a difficult question for anybody. There are no easy answers to the debate about gun control. The information and statistics all seem to contradict each other, and everyone has such strong opinions about guns that there must be a right one.
This is where this book on gun control comes to help. Here you will be given an engaging and insightful look into the world of guns and gun control.
Understanding the true nature of gun violence and gun culture in the USA is as much about developing the ability to think critically about statistics and society as it is determining whether we should be giving people guns or taking them away.
The NRA tells you that guns stop 2.5 million crimes a year. Mother Jones tells you that you're more likely to kill yourself or your children than a criminal with a gun. Who to believe? What's the agenda?
Whether Republican or Democrat, gun-nut or gun-phobic, the truth is that the USA's gun homicide rate doesn't just beat out America's competition in the Western world, it obliterates it. Does this mean we need to bury our guns or make sure we have enough to go around?
Discover what gun control really means and how it would manifest itself in America. How can we realistically reduce gun crime and stop headlines about another school shooting?
chapters 8 and 10 are about the dangers of sugar and have nothing to do with gun control. obviously this is a problem with my recording.
This book is carefully written and quite comprehensive. The data speak loudly and convincingly that laws that allow people (rightfully) to bear arms leads to less crime. All citizens should listen to this very important book.
The end all book on crime and gun control. Not that anyone should need validation in protecting themselves and their loved ones. John has done his homework and used Gov't statistics to prove the notion that if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. A must have for the well informed patriot.
No matter what side of the debate you are on, this should be a necessary book for anyone. Great insight into the criminal mindset, and a great scientific analysis of the factors involves in many shootings and gun control related incidents.
Author deserves our thanks for the great personal price he has paid to bring us facts and data that the gun-grabbers have worked so hard to conceal. So although we all apparently enjoy concealing things, some of us do it to protect our loved ones and neighbors, where those others do it at great risk to their loved ones and neighbors for purely ideological reasons. Especially enlightening is the great care author takes in raising objections to his conclusions and then rebutting them, only for gun grabbers to come along, raise the same objections (not as eloquently), and hide the fact that author has already answered them.
The best statistical analysis to date of the affect of privately owned firearms in the last 30 years. If you care about the 2nd Amendment, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution; you owe it to yourself to listen this excellent work.
