Neither a call for gun prohibition nor a diatribe against gun control, this book is intended for those with a particular interest in firearms, as well as serious students of public policy and criminal justice. In addition to covering a century of gun control policy, the author addresses such current issues as assault weapons, right-to-carry and concealed-carry laws, school shootings, and recent elections. Unlike its several counterparts, Shots in the Dark sheds light on a balanced and pragmatic approach to gun control legislation.
