ISBN: 1440835667 | 2017 | EPUB | 401 pages | 6 MB
This up-to-date second-edition work will stimulate and clarify readers' thinking on the key issues surrounding guns in the United States―especially on the debate over gun control.
• Provides a balanced view of the contemporary gun debate in the United States, explaining the positions of both gun rights proponents and advocates of stricter gun control without demonizing either
• Draws on a vast array of research in criminology, history, law, medicine, politics, and social science to provide one of the most comprehensive single-source references on gun issues
• Presents current and historical data on U.S. gun violence―including homicides, suicides, and accidental shoots―and places these numbers against international statistics on gun violence, thereby providing the context to enable readers to reach their own opinion on the gun debate
