William Briggs will speak about and sign his new book, How America Got Its Guns: A History of the Gun Violence Crisis, on Wednesday, May 30th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
In the United States, more than thirty thousand deaths each year can be attributed to firearms. How America Got Its Guns is the history of guns in America that examines the Second Amendment and the laws and court cases it has spawned. Balanced and painstakingly unbiased, William Briggs's thorough account shows the complexities of the issue which are so often reduced to bumper-sticker slogans, and suggests ways in which gun violence in this country can be reduced.
