This volume acknowledges a sad and unfortunate fact; your reader's world has an intimate relationship with gun violence, and incidents are only increasing. This book presents essays that discuss the reasons for and against gun control in the United States, especially in relation to violent crime. Will gun control reduce violence? Kevin Fagan explains yes, while Mark Alexander debates no and offers proof to why not. Does handgun ownership empower women? Rachel Jurado writes yes, while Amnesty International's esssay states the opposite. Do background checks reduce violent crime? Should the gun intustry be held responsible for gun violence? These hard-hitting questions are answered in this compelling compendium.
