Guns, by Stephen King (author), Christian Rummel (narrator)

Philtrum Press, January 2013

Since the Newtown massacre, the subject of gun control and gun safety has erupted again. This has, of course, been accompanied by the standard NRA fear-mongering that those suggesting any new restrictions at all are "gun grabbers" who want to disarm the American people.

Stephen King, solidly politically liberal and a life-long gun owner, arguably has a foot in "both camps," and wants to see a rational, effective response that respects everyone's rights. Guns is a thoughtful discussion of what the problems are, and what some of the solutions might be.

Highly recommended.
