Summary
Investigates the ways in which the current data on guns and crime are inadequate and inaccurate. Althought the majority of murders in the United States are committed with guns, research on gun ownership, the supply of guns, and the relationship between guns and crime is less thorough than studies done for many other aspects of public safety policy. This book explores the weaknesses in current findings, and extrapolates the implications of policy making based on these faulty foundations
