"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 ›

This book is still available on kindle, though I hope it will come back into print. It is one of those you will want to keep and make
marginal notes therein. Read more
This is an amazing book!!! The author set out to convince others that gun control was necessary and in the process discovered that gun control is wrong. Absolutely a great book!Published on April 17, 2013 by Rebecca Elliott
