This new paperback comprehensively reviews the research evidence on the links between guns, violence, and gun control, and reports results of the author’s own research as well. In Targeting Guns, Kleck follows the line of argument and careful statistical inference of his earlier prizewinning volume, Point Blank, while updating the literature reviews and statistical information, and adding two chapters.

It's nice to find an objective view of a subject that is so convoluted by emotion that it is near impossible to find facts that can be believed. This is a book for those who want to understand a subject, and not those looking to reinforce an opinion.
