At the prompting of a law-enforcement client, health-care researcher and former civilian disarmament supporter Howard Nemerov decided to investigate whether gun-control policies contributed to the safety and welfare of the average American citizen.
"Four Hundred Years of Gun Control: Why Isn't It Working" is the result of over three years of extensive research, presenting verifiable information and facts, letting the reader draw their own conclusions. Cutting through the rhetoric, "Four Hundred Years" includes extensive data analysis from neutral and pro-gun-control sources to determine if the laws have worked...after 400 years.

The book, Four Hundred Years of Gun Control...Why Isn't It Working?" is the first publication from a new Libertarian and pro-gun publishing company called Contrast Media Press. The publishing company is owned and operated by journalist, John Longenecker.
"Four Hundred Years of Gun Control...Why Isn't It Working?" was written by Howard Nemerov, a healthcare researcher. Nemerov used to favor total civilian disarmament, and set out to prove that gun control would make society safer. However, the results of his research had the complete opposite effect.
Through his research, Nemrov proved that strict gun control laws do not make society safer and it turned him into a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. His ongoing research has been turned into numerous articles and the book, "Four Hundred Years of Gun Control...Why Isn't It Working?"
The book is filled with more than enough statistics to keep a numbers geek like me happy. Don't get me wrong, it is not just a book full of statistics, graphs, and charts. It is a highly educational and entertaining book. "Four Hundred Years of Gun Control...Why Isn't It Working?" is very comparable to John Lott's book, "More Guns, Less Crime" In case you do not know, John Lott's research is held in extremely high regards by gun owners, Second Amendment advocates, patriots, and scholars. That being said, comparing Nemerov's research to John Lott`s research is a huge compliment.
"Four Hundred Years of Gun Control...Why Isn't It Working?" is broken down into eight chapters, an appendix, and over thirty pages of endnotes. Unlike many anti-gun researchers, Nemerov is more than willing to show you where he obtained his information. The following is a quick summary of all eight chapters.Read more ›
