"Recommended for academic, public, and high school libraries."—Library Journal

Since high-profile mass shooting incidents such as Columbine High School have occurred, the debate over gun control has continued to be an important local issue in many areas. Developments have continued in the courts without a discernable outcome, like the resurgence of Second Amendment litigation in the past few years. In civil court, the attempts to sue gun makers for negligent distribution or marketing of their products have met with mixed success and gun makers, aided by the Republican majority (and some moderate Democrats), seem poised to pass federal legislation that would shield gun manufacturers from negligent marketing claims.

Gun Control, Revised Edition explores all aspects of this complex and important issue in a balanced manner. Including an overview of the topic that provides historical context, this authoritative reference focuses mainly on developments within the United States. The revised edition has been expanded to offer greater coverage of how gun-related issues are being handled in other parts of the world, as well as more detail on the global proliferation of small arms such as AK-47 rifles and grenade launchers. This highly informative resource includes an annotated bibliography, chronology, glossary, biographical listing, a chapter on how to research the topic, laws and court cases, and a list of applicable organizations and agencies, making it the perfect one-stop source for the gun control debate.
