Snug as a Gun,
This review is from: Lethal Passage: The Story of a Gun (Paperback)
Lethal Passage: The Story of a Gun is the story of American gun culture told through the story of bullied schoolboy Nicholas Elliot, who plots his revenge by acquiring a handgun and then opening up on his teachers and classmates in a private Christian school in Virginia in December, 1988. Larson traces the history of the Cobray M-11/9 from its creation to its arrival in the hand of an angry young man in the context of (deliberately) lax legislation that makes it easier to get a gun than to get a driver's license in the United States.
Larson challenges the myths that suggest that gun ownership is part and parcel of the American character by citing statistics that show how our permissive gun culture undermines the safety and security we crave.
Larson does his research and tells one compelling story.

Acute Observer says:
Just where is it "easier to get a gun than to get a driver's license"?
In some states 16-years olds can get a driver's license. Can they also buy a firearm?
