Abstract:

This devastating book begins with an account of a crime that is by now almost commonplace: on December 16, 1988, sixteen-year-old Nicholas Elliot walked into his Virginia high school with a Cobray M-11/9 and several hundred rounds of ammunition tucked in his backpack. By day's end, he had killed one teacher and severely wounded another. Journalist Erik Larson shows us how a disturbed teenager was able to buy a weapon advertised as "the gun that made eighties roar." In so doing, he not only illuminates America's gun culture--its manufacturers, dealers, buffs, and propagandists--but also offers concrete solutions to our national epidemic of death by firearm. The result is a book that can--and should--save lives.--From publisher description.
