Gun Control and Gun Rights

Gun Control and Gun RightsGun Control and Gun Rights (N.Y.U. Press 2002) (with David B. Kopel & Brannon P. Denning) listing

Most firearms policy discourse falls firmly on one side of the debate or the other. Showcasing viewpoints from all sides of the gun control debate, Gun Control and Gun Rights offers the first (and still the only) balanced firearms law and policy book. Anyone looking for a fair, even-handed account of the gun issue will find it in this book.

Review Excerpts: 

“Most academic literature regarding firearms policy is one-sided advocacy scholarship. … This book seeks to create … a balance.” — Future Survey 

“For the most part, the gun-policy debate in the United States could be well summed up by Yeats’ words: The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. Truly honest scholarship … has been sorely lacking. … No one, it seems, has come forward to frame the questions that the debate ought to be seeking to answer.  Andrew McClurg, David Kopel, and Brannon Denning have done just that.” — Customer Review 

“[Any book by Brannon Denning,] Andrew McClurg, and David Kopel is bound to be a major—and more importantly an honest and balanced—contribution to the great American gun debate. Both Kopel and McClurg are fastidious scholars who are able to bring to this work the best of both sides.” — Barnes & Customer Review

    Gun advocates are like religious fanatics, they cant listen to logic. Its like you are taking away their religion and their right to breathe if you dont allow them to acquire more guns.

  • I agree that gun control studies are always biased and one sided because most of the time those studies are funded by gun manufacturers.
