A Few Commonsense Gun Laws: Is There Such a Thing? Can They Work? (Paperback)
Christopher A. "Kip" Crofts, former U.S. Attorney of Wyoming, former soldier, judge, police officer, and expert on guns and ammunition, examines the gun laws of the United States. He dissects their history and effectiveness while providing first-hand examples and engaging stories to demonstrate the ways in which these laws do nothing to end gun violence in the U.S. He provides in-depth discussions of many kinds of guns, including short-barreled guns and "assault" weapons, and why certain ones were banned. He details the Assault Weapons Ban, the 1968 Gun Control Act, the NICS system, universal background checks, the 1934 National Firearms Act, Gun-Free School Zones, Red-Flag Laws, and others. Further, he discusses why these bans have done nothing to curb the violence and provides a common sense approach to reduce violence without infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
