Review: Reducing Gun Violence in America: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis

Reducing Gun Violence in America: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis Reducing Gun Violence in America: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis by Daniel W. Webster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hand in hand with the above book is this book which was also born out of the Sandy Hook massacre. While Lysiak's book puts a face to the events and challenges around mass shootings, Webster's collection of essays by different authors approach the mass shootings from any analytical vantage point, using research and existing evidence around gun violence to determine ways and opportunities of reducing it. It offers many different approaches, none of which are monumental or unachievable and many of which do not necessarily challenge most people's thoughts around legality and appropriate level of response.
