Rampage Nation: Securing America from Mass Shootings

We rated this book:


In May of this year, it was reported that toddlers had shot twenty-three people this year. That’s how casual we are about gun violence these days. Mass shootings have occurred in churches, movie theaters, elementary schools, college campuses, military offices and bases, and nightclubs. What will it take to stop this?

Louis Klarevas believes that first we have to understand the violence before we can stop it, and in Rampage Nation he strives to do precisely that: analyze what we know about mass shootings to help make ourselves safer.

He finds fault with data analysts on both sides of the gun debate and provides his own research that stands up to far greater scrutiny. He helps provide a definition of “mass shooting,” something that has eluded both the media and law enforcement.

And although you may find fault with his step-by-step breakdown of how to decrease gun violence in this country, you won’t doubt that he’s put in the man-hours and homework to conduct the right discussion on how to get started right now.

Oh, and by the way, all gun-rights advocates should have to read Klarevas’s opening piece about Sandy Hook.
