From Columbine to Sandy Hook to San Bernardino, mass shootings are an epidemic unique to America among developed/Western nations in their frequency. But the level of "normal" gun violence in America is also far higher than virtually any other developed/Western nation, as well. In this short yet useful and data-driven exploration of the intersection between guns, policy, and politics in America, historian and policy/political expert Brian Frydenborg presents a series of discussions from a range of his work arranged by different themes-history, American exceptionalism, numbers, mentalities, and solutions-to bring his readers up to speed on the crucial public policy and political issue of guns in America. Anyone seeking to understand the tragedy of gun violence in America would do well to consider Mr. Frydenborg's thoughtful, data driven, and conveniently organized pieces on this urgent policy and political topic, especially as people consider who they will support in the elections of 2016.
