Présentation de l'éditeur
In some places, it's easier to get a gun than a glass of water. In some places, you are allowed to carry concealed firearms into schools. In some place, there are more guns than people to shoot them. There are almost 1 billion guns across the globe today - more than ever before. There are 12 billion bullets produced every year - almost 2 bullets for every person on this earth. And there are over 300,000 people shot dead over an average year worldwide. The gun's impact is long-reaching and often hidden. And it doesn't just involve the dead, the wounded, the suicidal and the mourning. It involves us all. The pain caused by a gunshot does not end with the pulling of the trigger. That is just the beginning.
Gun Baby Gun takes the award-winning investigative journalist Iain Overton on a shocking and eye-opening journey to over 25 countries, from Cape Town to Tokyo, from San Pedro Sula to Phnom Penh. Meeting people affected by guns from all walks of life - porn starlets who appear as snipers in XXX films, Zionist anti-terror gun trainers, El Salvadoran gangland killers, South African doctors soaked in the blood of gunshot victims - he unearths some hard truths about the terrible realities of war and gun crime. Harrowing and sobering, it's a riveting exposé that anyone with even the smallest interest in how the world really works will want to read.

Mr Overton takes us on a tour of the world of the gun. Firstly, we see the pain of those wounded or extinguished by them, to the hospitals that have learnt so much from the gashes, exit wounds and shrapnel they so suddenly inflict on the human body. We observe the power that firearms give people, to defend themselves and their loved ones in a failing state or the deadly presence that a gun can give a criminal and the necessary power that peacekeepers have to wield. We're also taught about the pleasure that guns can bring, I personally know the satisfaction of scoring a V-Bull at 500 yards, do I have a right to that? In the chapter labeled 'Sex Pistols' the reader sees the sex appeal that guns undeniably have, another example of the curious link between sexuality and mortality. Finally we meet (or don't) those who make their living from firearms; going from the largest manufacturers and distributors in the world to small mom-and-pop outfits in the United States. Overall, Gun Baby Gun is an engaging, educational and, honestly, essential read for anyone with even a passing interest in world affairs. I am sure it will be very controversial.
