Summary
"Guns, Gun Control, and Elections examines current gun control policy and explains how it was adopted by discussing the roles and interactions of elected officials, interest groups, political parties, and the public. Original research on media coverage and public opinion, as well as a chapter on Virginia's state policy, make the book both informative and accessible. The book focuses on the utility of gun policy and its discussion of policy impact is grounded in real-world politics. The author highlights the importance of the gun control issue in the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004, as well as in some U.S. Senate and statewide campaigns."--Jacket
