Summary
"Few social issues have produced more exaggerated claims and contention among Americans than the struggle to control gun violence. Fueling the emotional fire in debates between firearms groups such as the National Rifle Association (NRA) and gun-control advocates is the dispute over the importance of guns in American culture. Is the fondness for firearms truly part of a venerable American tradition, one to be observed with very few limits? In this fascinating inquiry, Alexander DeConde delves into the myths and politics regarding gun-keeping, as well as the controversies over gun use, crime, and policing from the early days of the republic to the present."--Jacket
