Description

Going beyond the emotional appeals and stilted rhetoric on gun control, this book tackles the problems in a straight-forward, intelligent manner. Each chapter in this powerful volume, written by leading experts in law, criminology, medicine, psychiatry, and feminist studies, addresses a major issue in the gun-control debate. The conclusions of this carefully detailed and superbly argued study are difficult to deny: "gun control" is a red herring that has been deflecting attention from the true causes of crime, namely, the breakdown of the family; failed social welfare programs; and increasing hopelessness among male youths, especially in our troubled inner cities.
