Abstract: Economics professor presents statistical data that contradicts the claims of firearm-control advocacy groups. Possession of guns by law-abiding citizens is shown to reduce crime. Claims that firearm possession is more dangerous to family and friends than disarmament are shown to be fallacious. Book was featured on KFYI Barry Young show May 6, 1998.
