More About the Author

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

A world without guns - on paper, it sounds like a great idea. "Four Hundred Years of Gun Control: Why Isn't It Working?" is a look back on America's long history of restricted gun ownership from even before America was a country. An educated and scholarly look at one of America's most hotly debated issues and one that has been for centuries, "Four Hundred Years of Gun Control" is a must for any discussion on Gun control and for anyone who thinks removing protection from citizens is a good idea.

This is a must read for all who believe that guns equal crime, it does a great job in dismantling anti rights groups arguments.

I have only read part way so far but this book is definitely worth the time and money if you are interested in the subject of "gun control" or the right to own and carry firearms.
