Description:

It may surprise you to learn that 1 out of 3 American homes with kids have guns. This startling statistic speaks volumes of what we need to be doing; educating our children about guns and gun control. While strict rules and stern guidance can help, nothing helps better than giving young people a chance to think for themselves. This collection of pro versus con essays does just that. Across four chapters, readers will evaluate if gun ownership is a threat to society, if the second amendment protects private gun ownership, whether regulations reduce crime and violence, and which measures would be useful in reducing gun violence. Essay sources include Americans for Gun Safety, GunGuys.com, Legal Action Project, Saul Cornell, and Ik-Whan G. Kwon.
