Give a Boy a Gun by Todd Strasser
Give a Boy a Gun

Yardpilot, May 12, 2009

This is a work of sensationalistic trash. Little in it is true, though the author claims it is all "based on fact." Most of the "statistics" and "facts" are based on debunked, disproved, or just plain fictional sources. It is simply another piece of anti-gun propaganda designed to demonize guns and gun owners. The obvious influences of the usual anti-gun groups is difficult to miss in this mangled mess of misinformation. It is an insult to any thinking person to see how little regard the author holds for the intellect of the people who read his "book."
