Overview

Gun Guys: A Road Trip by Dan Baum

Dan Baum is a gun fanatic. He is also Jewish Democrat who grew up in suburban New Jersey. In Gun Guys, he takes us on a guided tour of gun stores and gun shows, shooting ranges and festivals, contests and auctions, trying to figure out what draws so many of us to guns in the first place. Is it just part of being American?  Introducing a wide cast of characters, Baum shows both sides of the gun culture in America, bringing an entire world vividly to life, and in doing so helping to find a middle ground in the gun debate, where actual conversation can take place.

The author really nails the issues here, no matter what side of the "gun control vs. gun rights" debate you start from. About every other chapter, I found some nugget of "Wow, that explains what is going on, and totally makes sense!" Very well written, and presents an objective view. How can our country reach consensus and common ground on this issue? The author may not answer that question completely, but you'll walk away with better insight and a much richer understanding after reading the book.
