Industry Reviews

"Melzer brilliantly integrates deep personal observation with data and theory to construct a three-dimensional portrait of the modern gun rights movement. In a wonderfully written, engaging, and scrupulously fair narrative, Melzer's book makes a major contribution to our understanding of this tumultuous social movement and also happens to be a really good read."
-Robert J. Spitzer, author of "The Politics of Gun Control"
