Reviews

"In his eminently readable style, mixing science and anecdote, Diaz shows how our leaders have created gun policies that are good for the gun industry but horrific for our nation. He also describes solutions worthy of the name. What a timely book!"
--David Hemenway, Professor of Health Policy, Harvard School of Public Health

"Diaz once again reveals what the firearms-industrial complex doesn't want the public to know, while refusing to spare politicians and the media for their complicity in the cover-up...This book should be required reading for policy makers at every level and for every American fed up with the massacre of 30,000 people a year."
--Andrew Fois, Deputy Attorney General, Public Safety Division, Washington, D.C.

"Through a gripping narrative that combines plenty of factual data with compelling storytelling, Diaz makes the convincing case that the gun industry is knowingly trading American lives for profits...After the tragedy of Newtown, if you are going to read one book to understand the current political fight in Washington, this is it."
--Joshua Horwitz, Executive Director, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence
