9781440835667: Gun Control in the United States: A Reference Handbook, 2nd Edition (Contemporary World Issues)

This up-to-date second-edition work will stimulate and clarify readers' thinking on the key issues surrounding guns in the United States―especially on the debate over gun control.


· Provides a balanced view of the contemporary gun debate in the United States, explaining the positions of both gun rights proponents and advocates of stricter gun control without demonizing either

· Draws on a vast array of research in criminology, history, law, medicine, politics, and social science to provide one of the most comprehensive single-source references on gun issues

· Presents current and historical data on U.S. gun violence―including homicides, suicides, and accidental shoots―and places these numbers against international statistics on gun violence, thereby providing the context to enable readers to reach their own opinion on the gun debate

Book Description:

There are as many guns in the United States as there are adults, and each year we suffer more than 27,000 gun-related deaths and more than 60,000 gun-related injuries. Would gun control reduce these tragic numbers? This question is hotly debated across the country. Available information, even from scholars, tends to be agenda-driven and objective information is not easy to find.

About the Author:

Gregg Lee Carter is professor of sociology at Bryant University in Smithfield, RI.
