Guns and Crime: The Data Don't Lie investigates the ways in which
the current data on guns and crime are inadequate and inaccurate.
Although the majority of murders in the United States are committed
with guns, research on gun ownership, the supply of guns, and the
relationship between guns and crime is less thorough than studies
done for many other aspects of public safety policy. This book
explores the weaknesses in current findings, and extrapolates the
implications of policymaking based on these faulty foundations. As
the gun debate continues to rage in North America, this text offers
a cautionary voice to the discourse-before practitioners and policy
makers can create a solution to gun violence, they must first
improve the quality of the facts they use to make their case.
Intended for criminology, statistics, sociology, and economics
students, Guns and Crime is also suitable for interested laypersons
and practitioners hoping to better understand the mythos
surrounding guns in America.
