Summary
"We live in the Age of the Gun. Around the globe, firearms are ubiquitous and define countless lives; in some places, it's even easier to get a gun than a glass of clean water. In others, it's legal to carry concealed firearms into bars and schools. In [this book], Iain Overton embarks on a ... journey to understand how these weapons have become an integral part of twenty-first century life, beyond the economics of supply and demand"--Amazon.com
