In some places of the world, getting a gun is easier than getting a glass of water. In some parts of the world, an individual is allowed to carry concealed firearms into schools. In some parts of the world, there are more guns than people to shoot them.
There are almost 1 billion guns across the globe today, a shocking number that is higher than ever before in history. Each year, 12 billion bullets are produced -- almost two bullets for every person on the planet. And over 300,000 people are shot dead over an average year worldwide.
In The Way of the Gun award-winning investigative journalist Iain Overton takes readers on a shocking and eye-opening journey to over 25 cities all across the globe, from Cape Town to Tokyo, from San Pedro Sula to Phnom Penh, along the way encountering people from all walks of life affected by guns: Zionist anti-terror gun trainers; El Salvadoran gangland killers; porn starlets who appear as snipers in triple-X films; and South African doctors soaked in the blood of gunshot victims -- unearthing some hard truths about the terrible realities of war and gun crime.
Harrowing and sobering, this riveting expose on the long-reaching and mostly unknown life of a gun is an essential and important book in today's world.
