Mr. Larson exposes the cracks in the gun control system and shows the ease with which a boy could purchase an automatic weapon and murder in cold blood.

3.0 out of 5 stars One sided view point
Larson does show that straw purchasers of handguns contribute to crime. He spends little or no time on the contributing factors for such gun purchases. He does not address guns obtained by theft, or illegal sales or the lending of firearms within extended families, gangs or circles of acquaintances.
If your mind is already made up, you'll like this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading for anyone joining the NRA!, 8 Feb 1999

This review is from: Lethal Passage: The Story of a Gun (Vintage) (Paperback)
This is a very well written and researched account of a tragic event of the nature we encounter too often in the daily news. At the same time, it illuminates the tragic and absurd situation in which the country has placed itself on the subject of gun control.

Being aware of the real life events of the book, I can say that Lethal Passage is accurate and honest. Mr. Larson exposes the cracks in the gun control system and shows the ease with which a boy could purchase an automatic weapon and murder in cold blood. The murder story can make one cry in sorrow and in anger. His purpose in writing was to make a point in order to keep similar tragedies from occurring again. Unfortunately, up to this point, no one has listened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lethal Passage by Erik Larsen, 19 April 2011

This review is from: Lethal Passage: The Story of a Gun (Vintage) (Paperback)
A well written description of the history and practice of the U.S.A.'s gun legislation and violent crime in America. It gives the reader an understanding of the incidence of hand gun related murder (over 25,000 annually) in the U.S. For the American reader, it is a call to action.
