Description
In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy, The Washington Post investigates America's complicated relationship with guns. Wayne LaPierre, the leader of the National Rifle Association, calls gun control "the fight of the century." For more than a year, The Washington Post examined the long, bloody history of gun control in America, an investigation that was reopened and expanded after the massacre of first-graders in Newtown, Connecticut. With new reporting on the state of gun reform in the aftermath of Newtown, including how the families are recovering and the dangers represented by new technologies such as 3D printing, this updated eBook shines a light on the hidden life of guns in the United States. From the power of the NRA and its war over the Second Amendment, to US guns fueling the drug war along the Mexican border, the prize-winning journalists of the Washington Post reveal the politics and the passions behind the continuing gun control debate.

The Fight of the Century. That's what Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association's fiery leader, has promised now that President Obama has proposed some of the most sweeping gun reforms in decades. For more than a year, The Washington Post examined the long, bloody history of gun control in America, an investigation that was reopened and expanded after the massacre of first-graders in Newtown, Connecticut. In a series of articles and web documentaries, Post journalists have shined a light on the hidden life of guns in the country. This prize-winning reporting, collected in an eBook edition for the first time, reveals how politics have hamstrung efforts to curb gun violence, how U.S. guns have fueled the drug war along the Mexican border, and how most of the illegal guns in America are distributed by just a handful of dealers. Most recently, the Post has looked deeply into the power of the NRA as it mounts its biggest battle yet in the 40-year-old war over the Second Amendment.
