Young people are suffering the most from the epidemic of gun violence—as early as kindergarten students are crouching behind locked doors during active shooter drills. Teens are galvanizing to speak up and fight for their right to be safe. They don’t just want to get involved, they want to change the world. Enough Is Enough is a call to action for teens ready to lend their voices to the gun violence prevention movement. This handbook deftly explains America’s gun violence issues—myths and facts, causes and perpetrators, solutions and change-makers—and provides a road map for effective activism.
Told in three parts, Enough Is Enough also explores how America got to this point and the obstacles we must overcome, including historical information about the Second Amendment, the history of guns in America, and an overview of the NRA. Informative chapters include interviews with teens who have survived gun violence and student activists who are launching their own movements across the country. Additionally, the book includes a Q&A with gun owners who support increased gun safety laws.
“[ENOUGH IS ENOUGH] is a substantive look at the causes of the serious epidemic of gun violence in America and a how-to manual for making positive changes to create safer schools and communities. Using well-researched facts, this book dispels the myth that nothing can be done.” — KIRKUS Reviews
“[McCann] guides her readers into activism by providing background information on the movement and interviews with teen survivors of gun violence. The book also includes profiles of teens who have launched groups engaged with the issue and organized letter-writing campaigns and rallies.” — Publishers Weekly, “The War of Words Over Guns”
"This is one of the most important books to purchase […], particularly given the large number of mass shootings that have occurred in the United States in recent years.” — School Library Connection
