Crime, Culture Conflict, and the Sources of Support for Gun Control.
Kleck, Gary
American Behavioral Scientist, v39 n4 p387-404 Feb 1996
Questions whether attitudes towards gun control are influenced primarily by exposure to high crime rates, prior victimization, and fear of crime, or result from membership in social groups hostile to gun ownership. Maintains that support for gun control is more a product of culture conflict than a response to crime. (MJP)
