Summary

"Looking at America from the floor of a gun show, Gun Show Nation answers the question posed by Michael Moore's hit documentary film Bowling for Columbine: why are Americans so obsessed with guns? And what can be done about it? Gun Show Nation goes beyond the issues of handgun bans and child-safety locks to delve into what the author sees as the heart of the matter-that owning a gun has come to be seen as a fundamental right in our democracy."--BOOK JACKET.
