The politics of gun control
The Politics of Gun Control remains the authoritative standard for anyone seeking fair-minded analysis of the American gundebate. In his new edition, Spitzer homes in on three key political events that shape the politics of gun control in America today: the shootings at Columbine High School, the partisan gun-control positions staked out before and after the 2000 election, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. These events spurred a number of dramatic developments that Spitzer explores in depth: the Million Mom March in 2000, the first significant legislative efforts since 1994 to alter existing federal gun laws, and the sharp rise in handgun sales post-9/11.
