Prof. Simon Chapman's Over Our Dead Bodies: Port Arthur and the Fight for Gun Control - Australia's last gun massacre is now a free E-book and available at the following link:
strongly suggest that anyone who is involved in the US gun violence/gun
control movement read this book. Australia's political climate
surrounding this issue at the time of the Port Arthur Massacre was
eerily similar to that of the US, yet the Australians were able to cut
through the non-sense and enact serious and effective gun control laws.
This is a valuable lesson for people who want to see similar laws in the US.
This book is really about the workings of the media, the use
of lobbying, and the skills of advocacy. So pick a day when you are
tired of dealing with the aftermath of ignored public health issues and
read this ripping yarn, arm yourself with the tools it offers, and be
ready to go into battle.
