The Gun Control Movement, the latest addition to the Social Movements Past and Present series, provides a map of the social and political landscape of the gun control movement in the United States. It analyzes the relationship between guns and violence, American attitudes about gun control and how those attitudes affect and reflect the movement, and the future of gun control in the United States. Author Gregg Lee Carter discusses at length the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. He focuses on the mid-1970s to the present, but also introduces a historical context for guns and gun control in Western cultures, with many cross-national comparisons concerning gun laws, gun prevalence, and gun violence. The Gun Control Movement is accessible not only to all academic levels but also to activists on both sides of the gun-control debate and to the general public. Carter does not present any easy solutions to the problems of gun violence. This lucid introduction to the key issues surrounding the movement will stimulate readers' careful consideration. Supplementing the text are a preface, tables and figures, notes and references, selected bibliography, and index.

    The Gun Control Movement

    The Gun Control Movement by Gregg Lee Carter is a fantastic novel. It brings the reader throughout the history of gun control, not only in the United States but in other countries. It explains the Second Amendment thoroughly and shows all sides to the debate about the right to bear arms. My opinion is that the citizen¿s right to bear arms shall not be infringed on by anything like gun control laws. If the Government put too many regulations on guns soon, we as citizens will no longer be able to purchase guns and defend ourselves if the Government has too much control. The book goes into great detail about the passing of the laws in congress. It even talks about who supported and who did not support the law. The novel is very informative, but it also is rather boring if you are not really interested in the history of gun control. The book also talks about the history of weapon control, it mentions the medieval times and how certain people were required to own a weapon. One thing I really enjoyed about the book is that it includes all opinions when it discusses different issues. The way the book is organized is very good. I liked how it is split up into five chapters and each chapter deals with a different aspect on gun control. It explains everything in great detail. If you have to research something on gun control or you just want to learn about it, this book is for you. I am not one that is very interested in guns, but I did enjoy this book. It was a little boring in some parts, but I found it informative and interesting. If you are interested in history, politics and guns this book is defiantly for you.
