Book Description

100% of the proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to help kids here in the U.S. and all around the world via The Save the Children Fund.
Given recent tragedies, the gun control debate has again taken center stage in the United States.

Everyone wants more safety for their loved ones, but what happens if we aren't capable of a constructive discussion or debate at the local or federal levels?

What kind of laws are we getting from our appointed officials on both sides of the aisle if they're more concerned with pushing their or their party's agenda rather than being open-minded enough to genuinely consider what the other person has to say?

In Where We Stand: The Gun Control Debate we discuss the state of the debate itself and how its flaws hinder our ability to effectively have a positive impact on the issue of gun violence. We tackle all forms of gun crime, their causes, gun violence in video games and other entertainment media, as well as go over statistics that lead us to definitive conclusions regarding gun violence in the US compared to the rest of the world and the effectiveness of a firearm in a civilian's hands compared to the effectiveness of a firearm in a police officer's hands and how certain laws affect their ability to protect themselves and others.

This is the first edition of a five part series that will cover multiple topics. After the five are written, a second edition will be published for each along with a single book containing all five revised parts in both ebook and physical formats.

If you have any thoughts on the topic whether it be new information or a rebuttal, constructive criticism for future writing, or a descriptive review for potential readers' and my sake, please take the moment to post it along with a rating. Good or bad, I really appreciate it.

Editorial Reviews


"I have no reservations about recommending this quick and informative publication. Mr. Gopoian has chosen to approach this important discussion with logic and facts as opposed to the emotional appeals and uninformed opinions that seem to be so prevalent in the wake of the terrible shootings in Newtown." -Reg Gabbert

From the Author

Ask The Author

Q: "Where do you form your views from?"
A: The views are from attempting to question both sides of things as equally as possible. It often leads to a third and less obvious observation that is contrary to both polarized sides. I never reword someone else's words, but I can't imagine that I'm the first to say most of this stuff in the way I do... even if it seems completely original to me.
Imagine if people tried proving themselves wrong just as adamantly as they tried proving others wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars A civil and thoughtful commentary April 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it is a work in progress; it will get there and I have no reservations about recommending this quick and informative publication.

Mr. Gopoian has chosen to approach this important discussion with logic and facts as opposed to the emotional appeals and uninformed opinions that seem to be so prevalent in the wake of the terrible shootings in Newtown. He presents his arguments as a series of readable and related essays on many of the topics dominating the gun control discussions in the press and the halls of power. The author makes no claim that this exposition is comprehensive or complete and, in fact, invites contributions from readers who may or may not agree with his conclusions so that a more thourough exposition can be presented. Just keep it civil.

I need to admit that my positive review may have something to do with the fact that, after recently spending quite a bit of time researching all sides of this issue, I found myself in sympathy with many of the author's conclusions. You may not agree with some or all of the arguments, and that is just fine. Regardless of your current position on the gun control topic, this publication will give you some food for thought and, if you like, an opportunity to express yourself. I plan to.

More About the Author

"The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." -Leonardo da Vinci

I won't try and convince you that I'm some kind of expert in any field, as even experts are proven wrong often enough. My writing is informal and could very well contain inaccurate information despite my attempts to avoid it. My point being is that I'm simply trying to be genuine with you the reader as I would be in person.

I was born in 1984 in Nashua, New Hampshire, have lived most of my life in central Connecticut, and have studied psychology and philosophy on my own for as long as I can remember. My favorite book is Fahrenheit 451 and my favorite movie is What Dreams May Come.
