really liked it
bookshelves: social-sciences
Read in February, 1995

I wrote these impressions of the book back then:

>>This book is the story of 16 yr. old Nicholas who brought to school and fired a Cobray M 11/9. Through the story, Larson carefully traces the travels of the weapon and convincingly demonstrates what is wrong with gun laws in the United States. I found the book both interesting and instructive. Before reading it, I had not idea of how easy it could be to buy a firearm (not that I would want to). Mr. Larson's conclusions are credible because of the experiences he acquired while researching the book from shooting excursions with the NRA to acquiring a firearms dealer license.<<

The interesting thing now, a bit over ten years since I read the book, is that school shootings seem to be so much more common. A sad fact.
