The book is not a succession of chapters where each chapter builds on the conclusions from the previous. Rather, it's just a collection of unrelated 2 page-long articles. No data tables. No graphs (I love graphs).
I'm still looking for a well structured work on the matter.
As the previous reviewer has noted, the first reviewer obviously meant to give this book 5 stars and not 1.
He discusses the assault rifle ban, arming pilots and disarming Iraq as well as many other topics. It is all highly readable and definately recommended.
What a pity the opponents of firearms are unlikely to read it.
