Abstract

Pamela Haag’s The Gunning of America: Business and the Making of American Gun Culture (Basic Books, 2015) does something that no other serious book has done: it causes me to question the rationality of the author based on her apparent belief in the ability of mediums to communicate with the dead. Almost as disturbing is her belief that her religious beliefs are a legitimate basis for public policy.

Keywords: Second Amendment
