Mass Killings: Myth, Reality, and Solutions

Attorney Dave Hardy released a book in June on mass killings.  I'll let him tell you about it via the email he sent alerting VSSA to the book:
The one area where the anti-gun movement can still damage us is in the wake of a mass killing. (When was the last time you heard an anti argue for gun control as a solution to street crime? It was probably twenty years ago).

I researched the issue, and released a book via Amazon, “Mass Killings: Myth, Reality, and Solutions.” It buries the argument for gun control based on mass killings. Background checks? Mass killers will pass them all. Waiting periods? They plan for months. Ban AR-15s? They rarely use them. Ban standard cap magazines? Almost all carry two or more guns. And in any event, the most deadly mass killing in the world (in China) involved explosives, the most deadly in the U.S. involved a can of gasoline.

What will work? Media self-restraint. The killers are mostly extreme cases of narcissistic personality disorder: they’re willing to kill and die if it makes them an instant (evil) celebrity. If the media begins to ignore the killers’ names and pictures (as they did with the attack on Rep. Steve Scalise), the killers will have no motive. Beyond that, we can arm teachers: civilians have a track good record for stopping mass killers (I found the cases).

Here is the book’s Amazon page:
At less than 60 pages and less than $6.00, you don't want to pass up this book.
