It's written by a committee with an interesting makeup. Gary Kleck is on board. Unfortunately, so is Arthur Kellerman (who's now apparently working for the Rand Corporation).

It doesn't tell me much I don't already know. I have a BJS report on my desk right now that shows a 39% decline in firearms homicides between 1993 and 2011, and a 70% drop in "victimizations."

We've seen a politically-motivated push for more "research," but if it's done with any degree of academic honesty, it's going to help our cause.
