The Glock Book

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on January 27, 2012

There is a book, Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun . The author is promoting it, with interviews at NPR and Democracy Now . It is a good story, of an innovative product and savvy marketing. Atlanta’s Gold Club, r.i.p., played a key role in this marketing. If the book is anything like the interviews, it will be a great read.

In the NPR show, there is a contradiction. Paul Barrett, the author, discusses how gun control is a dead issue. There are more guns available in America today, and crime is going down. New York is a much safer city today, than it was twenty years ago. Then, Mr. Barrett mentions that he does not own a gun. He lives in New York, which has some of the toughest gun control laws in America. Perhaps these tough laws are the reason that New York is safer?
