    "On its initial publication in 1998, John R. Lott's More Guns, Less Crime drew both lavish praise and heated criticism. More than a decade later, it continues to play a key role in ongoing arguments over gun-control laws: despite all the attacks by gun-control advocates, on one has ever been able to refute Lott's simple, startling conclusion that more guns mean less crime. Relying on the most rigorously comprehensive data analysis ever conducted on crime statistics and right-to-carry laws, the book directly challenges common perceptions about the relationship of guns, crime and violence. For this third edition, Lott draws on an additional ten years of data -- including provocative analysis of the effects of gun bans in Chicago and Washington, DC -- that brings the book fully up to date and further bolsters its central contention.
    From the back cover.

    I've finally finished my first reading of this fine book. I find it at least as reinforcing of contemporary arguments for liberalizing gun carry as the first edition was in its day. I strongly recommend this third edition and especially for my Wisconsin neighbors. The book covers many contentious issues facing advocates of liberalizing gun carry in Wisconsin; fees, training, concealed/open carry just to name a few.

    Should be required reading in every high school in this country.

    We must contact our lawmakers today, tomorrow and the next day to remind them of Constitutional Carry.
    Laws are not written because of the actions of many, they are wrtiten because of the inactions of many.

    Should be required reading of every state legislator and with a quiz. GRGRSC bought a copy of the first edition for each legislator.
