Summary, etc.: The U.S.'s war over gun control has raged since the 1960s, with the 2008 Supreme Court decision on the Second Amendment as the latest skirmish and with discussion about guns being stalemated and dominated by mutually intolerant ideologies. Whitney carefully examines the U.S's relationship with firearms, delving into colonial history, and argues that trying to restrict gun ownership doesn't effectively deter crime. He advocates a focus on controlling violence rather than guns themselves as a compromise between the Right and Left's attitude toward the Second Amendment.
