Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
As the previous reviewer has noted, the first reviewer obviously meant to give this book 5 stars and not 1.
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.
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.
