Banned Books 2019 – Gun: A Visual History

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


A parent complained to an Oregon school teacher about this adult, but largely pictorial book about the history of guns. After review, library staff decided to remove the book from the only elementary school in the district that had it. It was retained for upper-level school libraries.
