Igor Volsky, 1986-

Book - 2019

The United States has more mass shootings, gun suicides, and nonfatal gun injuries than any other industrialized country in the world. Volsky believes that in order to significantly and permanently reduce gun deaths the United States, we need a bold new approach: a drastic reduction of the 390 million guns already in circulation and a new movement dedicated to a future with fewer guns.
