Title Details
Every Handgun Is Aimed at You by Sugarmann, Josh
Every Handgun Is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns
by Sugarmann, Josh
 
A concise and convincing presentation of the case for banning handguns in the United States. Gun-control advocates of every political stripe routinely call for trigger locks, "smart guns," or more rigorous gun-owner registration. But as this persuasive new book shows, such measures simply nibble around the edges of the problem and will not have a significant effect in reducing the epidemic levels of gun violence in American society. Every Handgun Is Aimed at You convincingly demonstrates that banning handguns is the most effective way to seriously reduce gun violence. This fact is widely recognized in other industrialized countries, but remains a largely unspoken truth in the United States, even as handgun-related tragedies across the country provoke widespread outrage and public discussion of the need for fundamental reform.

Chapters include:

* A "myths and reality" feature, which demolishes such well-worn untruths as the merits of self-defense use of handguns and the role of handguns in America's frontier image
* An "In Their Own Words" feature, which highlights the handgun-control opinions of ordinary people across the country, such as a police officer, a crime victim, a doctor, a hunting fan, and a former handgun owner
* Well-designed charts and graphs, which present the most important information in persuasive visual form

The book also includes practical steps any citizen can take to advance the cause of banning handguns in American society, from instigating local campaigns to helping foster state and national legislative efforts.
