Gun Control in the United States: A Reference Handbook

Front Cover
ABC-CLIO, 2006 - Reference - 408 pages
1 Review

Too often, the subject of gun control is treated simplistically--from Second Amendment absolutists to gun abolitionists. Simple answers, however, mask complex realities. This book, by a respected scholar of gun control and the author of ABC-CLIO's award-winning Guns in American Society, provides no answers. It does, however, present all aspects of the issue evenhandedly, giving readers both sides of the debate on all the issues and, thus, the tools to make their own informed decision.

This accessible book breaks the gun control debate into digestible topics: history, effectiveness, comparison with other industrialized countries, legislation and court cases, individuals and organizations, and reliable further resources. Readers seeking confirmation of their preconceptions will be disappointed; those looking for a thorough presentation of all the issues will be richly rewarded.
