Collective Security and the Demand for Legal Handguns.
McDowall, David; Loftin, Colin
American Journal of Sociology, v88 n6 p1146-61 May 1983
Law confidence in collective security contributes to the need for and the resistance to gun control policies. Time-series data on legal gun demand in Detroit from 1951 to 1977 are consistent with a model in which individuals respond to high violent crime rates, civil disorders, and police strength.
