I found this book in Barnes & Noble last night, and for 8 bucks I figured I could afford it. Apparently, it’s an update to a book that was originally published in 1992, the version I have includes three modern incidents, the Waco incident, Columbine, and the DC Snipers.
Once I finish it, I’ll post a full review – but right off the bat I want to question the inclusion of Columbine and the DC Snipers. The book purports to chronicle “America’s Gunfights”, which generally implies a mutual exchange of hot lead between (at least) two parties. Columbine and the DC attacks were the actions of cowards who did not “swap lead” with any other armed parties.
If anyone has read either the new version or the original ’92 version, I’m interested in your thoughts.
