The Bias Against Guns is overall a less technical book than More Guns, Less Crime, but in its later chapters, quite a few portions are still way over the heads of most laypersons (Poisson regressions and all). Bias seeks to explain why the costs of gun ownership to society are emphasized by the government and media over the benefits; despite the fact that the best evidence shows that the benefits clearly outweigh the costs.
