The focus on gun control measures has taken attention away from the real causes of crime: social failings and the breakdown of the family structure. This researches issues of gun control, examining statistics surrounding who owns and uses guns and arguing that a more important issue is why people are arming themselves. -- Midwest Book Review
From the Back Cover
Regardless of your views on the issue, this book forces you to think about how much a difference gun control will make in reducing crime in America. Kopel offers a number of common-sense alternatives which may offer far greater promise of reducing crime and violence.
--Gene Guerrero, ACLU
Whether you're an advocate or an opponent of gun control, this engaging, thoroughly research book presents innovative solutions to one of America's most pressing social problems.
--Richard Neeley, retired Chief Justice,
West Virginia Supreme Court. Partner, Neeley & Hunter, Charleston, West Virginia
This collection of essays by America's leading authorities on firearms policy will help to reinvigorate and rationalize a public debate that has become more hysterical and less factual with time.

Everyone will disagree with some recommendations but the authors provide the reasoning behind their recommendations. It will give you something to ponder.
A definite read if you want to be armed with the facts on gun control.
Written by the leading experts in law, criminology and medicine, this volume includes such headings as "Arms and the Woman"; "Doctors and Guns," further rebutting the arguments that guns are a public health menace; and "Children and Guns," dissecting the contentious and timely issue of guns and violence in our schools. It compliments David Kopel's previous masterpiece, The Samurai, the Mountie, and the Cowboy: Should America Adopt the Gun Controls of Other Democracies? honored as the 1993 Book of the Year by the American Society of Criminology's Division of International Criminology.
This expertly written book should occupy a place in the library of all citizens genuinely interested in the topic of gun and violence research and in understanding the fallacies of gun control as a public health issue.
Attorney, scholar and criminologist, David Kopel, should be commended for editing and compiling this comprehensive yet highly readable masterpiece.
Miguel A. Faria, Jr., M.D., Editor-in-Chief of the Medical Sentinel of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) and author of Medical Warrior: Fighting Corporate Socialized Medicine.
This book should take its place among the other outstanding, intellectually honest works in the literature of the gun control efficacy genre, including Gary Kleck's "Point Blank". the previously mentioned Kopel work, and John R. Lott, Jr.'s "More Guns Less Crime".
An added feature of this book is not only the brilliant analyses and conclusions Kopel makes on the ineffectualness of gun control laws on preventing crime and accidents, but Kopel provides analyses on REAL causes of these social ills and suggests REAL solutions. You should buy four copies of this book: one for you, one for your doctor, and send the other three to your senators and congressman.
