About the Book

Too many kids with guns are driving up violent crime rates and needless firearm deaths. What can we do about it? This book contains over two dozen solutions that will reduce firearm deaths without invoking the wrath of the U.S. Supreme Court, or violating anyone’s second amendment gun rights. Many only require a signature. There are an estimated 50 million Gun owners in the United States. Taking everyone’s guns away is neither practical, nor legal. Gun buy-backs do not reduce crime. Defunding police does not work. Guin laws are ignored by criminals. This book is neither pro-gun, nor anti-gun. It explores the experiences, the statistics, and the impact of various gun control strategies that have been used globally as well as within individual States. Much of what we are doing has already been proven to be ineffective in other countries. Some strategies do work & where statistics support these approaches, this book expands on them in detail. The author has also injected a few personal suggestions and insights into the problems of trying to control guns by mandates, rather than by using voluntary measures, which produce a better result with less government intrusion. In the end, the author proposes five major initiatives that can substantially reduce overall crime and death or injury from firearms.
