With startling incidents of increased gun violence in America, it is essential that young readers are given the opportunity to form intelligent opinions about this life-and-death issue. Editor Louise I. Gerdes has assembled a thought-provoking collection of essays that debate four questions: How serious is the problem of gun violence? What factors contribute to gun violence? Do private gun ownership policies reduce gun violence? What laws and regulations should govern guns? By navigating the issues with more than one viewpoint as answers, many divergent from each other, readers will activate their critical thinking skills. Fantastic essay sources, that include the National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action and Students for Gun Free Schools, make this book an excellent resource for research and report-writing as well.
