Kids & Guns: How Politicians, Experts, and the Press Fabricate Fear of Youth

Kids & Guns: How Politicians, Experts, and the Press Fabricate Fear of Youth by Mike Males 

With 2,500 fatal murders and suicides every month, the typical shooter is white and grownup, 90% are by adults. In Kids & Guns: How Politicians, Experts, and the Press Fabricate Fear of Youth, Mike Males writes about how America’s appalling firearms scourge is not teenage but grownup; not the product of dark inner-city gangstas and white social-reject gamesters, but mainstream values; not the disease of marginal outcasts, but winner-loser injustices from high school hallway to Washington suite.
