Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun
Books at the Bar

Thursday, September 27, 2012 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.

In 1982, an Austrian curtain rod maker, Gaston Glock, who had almost no experience with guns, was tinkering in his garage. Thirty years later, what he created there would be the instrumentality of the mass shootings in Tucson and at Virginia Tech, but would also become the service weapon of the New York City Police Department and other law enforcement agencies. Hear the remarkable story of how the Glock became America’s gun. A wine and cheese reception will precede the talk, and the book will be available for purchase.

Speaker: PAUL M. BARRETT, Assistant Managing Editor, “Bloomberg BusinessWeek;” Author of New York Times Bestseller, Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun
