Originally published in 2009 as: Lethal logic: exploding the myths that paralyze American gun policy.
These short-stories vary from ghost, to horror, to military in nature, and are just perfect for the man with the short attention-span.
"In Ted Kaczynski Killed People With Bombs, the intention of the first act is to explore our impulse to "explain" why horrific acts are committed. A character called Wild Nature--sprung from a passage in the Unabomber manifesto--leads a group of actors in the performance of six "explanations" for Ted Kaczynski's behavior: his childhood; the Murray experiment at Harvard; his two years at Berkeley; mental illness; unrequited love; and Wild Nature--some brand of ungovernable psychosexual rage. Wild Nature and the acting troupe take their bows and exit. Act II opens exactly as Act I opened: Wild Nature begins to perform the identical show until s/he realizes the same audience has returned. Since they can't trot out the "explanations" again, they abandon this and decide to just tell the story, letting the questions live. In awarding the 2003 PEN USA Literary Award for drama, the judges wrote: "Carter has constructed a kaleidoscopic postmodern exploration of the real-life events and influences that unleashed the Unabomber. Her comprehensive research and keen eye for insightful details result in vivid, gripping portraits of the alienated terrorist and those who knew him. By skillfully blending thoughtful analysis with humor, sympathy and occasional quirky song, Carter lulls us into thinking that the distrubed mind of a homegrown terrorist is explainable, perhaps even forgivable--before lowering the emotional boom as the focus shifts from the eccentricities of the bomber to the horror inflicted on his victims ... Carter's cautionary drama uncovers deeper truths that endure long past the limited shelf life of a media event."--Publisher's website.
It is not just the deceived that need truth. It is not just the godless that need God. It is not just the sick that need health. We all need truth, we all need God, and we all need "Health." We have an unseen enemy that wants to destroy our "Health." The Bible calls them principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual forces of evil. I call them "Spiritual Terrorists." They want to steal, kill, and destroy. We can be victorious over our spiritual and physical adversities. We must stand against the spiritual "Terrorists of Our Health."
This book critically examines the link between guns and violence. It weighs the value of guns for self-protection against the adverse effects of gun ownership and carrying. It also analyses the role of public opinion, the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, and the firearms industry and lobby in impeding efforts to prevent gun violence. Confronting Gun Violence in America explores solutions to the gun violence problem in America, a country where 90 people die from gunshot wounds every day. The wide-range of solutions assessed include: a national gun licensing system; universal background checks; a ban on military-style weapons; better regulatory oversight of the gun industry; the use of technologies, such as the personalization of weapons; child access prevention; repealing laws that encourage violence; changing violent norms; preventing retaliatory violence; and strategies to rebuild American communities. This accessible and incisive book will be of great interest to students and researchers in criminology and sociology, as well as practitioners and policy-makers with an interest in gun ownership and violence.
Surveys the various types of personalities and recommends methods for handling conflicts with people at home and at work.

Now don't you think that we need to elect politicians who will vote for what is best for our American society as a whole and not for their own political agendas?
