GUN BABY GUN: A BLOODY JOURNEY INTO THE WORLD OF THE GUN.
Shortlisted for a CWA Dagger
There are almost one billion guns across the globe today – more than ever before. There are 12 billion bullets produced every year – almost two bullets for every person on this earth. And as many as 500,000 people are killed by them ever year worldwide.
The gun’s impact is long-reaching and often hidden. And it doesn’t just involve the dead, the wounded, the suicidal and the mourning. It involves us all.
The pain caused by a gunshot does not end with the pulling of the trigger. That is just the beginning.
Gun Baby Gun takes the award-winning investigative journalist Iain Overton on a shocking and eye-opening journey to over 25 countries, from South Africa to Iceland, Honduras to Cambodia.
Meeting people affected by guns from all walks of life – porn starlets who appear as snipers in XXX films, Zionist anti-terror gun trainers, El Salvadoran gangland killers, South African doctors soaked in the blood of gunshot victims – he unearths some hard truths about the terrible realities of war and gun crime.
Harrowing and sobering, it’s a riveting expose that anyone with even the smallest interest in how the world really works will want to read.
The book is available on Amazon.
It can also be purchased on e-pub.
