Pressestimmen"Horner has produced a detailed, well-organized, and ably written treatment of the struggle over the right to carry concealed weapons in Missouri. He has placed this controversy in the context of Missouri state politics and has provided insight into how propositions become law. Importantly, Horner has shown the influence of lobbying in the legislative process, analyzing with care the role of the NRA in fighting for conceal-and-carry and the role of those groups who opposed legislation." - Lawrence O. Christensen"
