 Is Alcohol Behind the Gun Violence Problem?

Sociologist Robert Nash Parker believes he has the solution to the gun violence crisis in America: Regulating alcohol. In his new book, Alcohol and Violence: The Nature of the Relationship and the Promise of Prevention, Parker writes that limiting the number of liquor stores in one area and banning 40-oz. beers could make a difference, reported the Huffington Post.
