Summary "Private Guns, Public Health reveals the advantages of treating gun violence as a consumer safety and public health problem. David Hemenway demonstrates how a public-health approach - which emphasizes prevention over punishment, and has been so successful in reducing the rates of injury and death from infectious disease, car accidents, and tobacco consumption - can be applied to gun violence."--BOOK JACKET
