The Gold Standard of Gun Control - Book Review of Joyce Malcolm, Guns and Violence: The English Experience
7 Pages Posted: 17 Oct 2007
Guns and Violence tells a remarkable story of a society's self-destruction, of how a government in a few decades managed to reverse six hundred years of social progress in violence reduction. The book is also a testament to the amazing self-confidence of British governments; Labour and Conservative alike have proceeded with an extreme anti-self-defense agenda, although the agenda has never had much supporting evidence beyond the government's own platitudes.
