Riassunto: In a time when each new accidental death, school shooting, or political assassination draws unprecedented and polemical media attention, Robert J. Spitzer, a member of both the NRA and the Brady Center, steers clear of divisive rhetoric to present the contentious issue of gun control in the United States. Although the topic is controversial, Spitzer?s even-handed analysis makes this a perfect example of policy studies in the United States.
