Gun control and the NRA / Joellen McCarty, book editor.
"School shootings and mass gun violence have brought the gun control debate to national attention, and according to a 2018 survey, 57 percent of Americans believe that stricter gun laws are necessary. However, the same survey found that 42 percent of Americans live in gun-owning households, indicating that gun ownership is deeply embedded in American life. How can the right to gun ownership and the necessity of reducing gun violence be reconciled? Is the NRA a necessary protector of civil liberties, or does it stand in the way of effective legislation? This volume will examine these contentious questions"-- Provided by publisher.
