Overview

How does the anti-gun ownership bias in the mainstream media manifest itself, and why does it exist? How has Hollywood's treatment of guns changed over the past three-plus decades, and what are the possible social repercussions of these changes? How have various elites attempted over the centuries to use gun controls to keep non-elites in line? How are these issues related to each other? These are among the questions addressed in Gun Control=People Control, a collection of eleven essays originally published in such periodicals as Reason, Liberty, Chronicles, and Gun Week.

Starting back in the middle 1970's, careful scholars, many of whom were themselves uneasy about guns, began producing studies demolishing gun-prohibitionist claims that widespread gun ownership fosters high violent-crime rates, that guns are useless for self-defense purposes, and that the Second Amendment guarantees no individual right to keep and bear arms. However, these gun-prohibitionists claims have yet to be publicly discredited and are widely accepted in circles considered to be enlightened. Why? Could it be that attempts to control civilian gun ownership to the point of prohibition have nothing to do with crime control? Read this book and find out.
