More than 75 percent of first and second graders know where their parents keep their firearms. Whether we like it or not, our children are growing up with gun culture and gun violence. This essential volume addresses these inevitable facts by focusing on gun control. The collection of essays serves as a primer to this issue, so that young readers will start thinking critically about guns and their impact. Across three chapters, readers will evaluate whether people have the right to guns, which gun control regulations are effective and necessary, and what measures should be taken to reduce gun violence. Essay sources include Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter.
