In 7 pages, the author discusses gun control. The topic of gun control is not a new one. It has been the focus of the nation for years, and this focus is increasing. With the presidential primaries that have occurred as well as the general election in November, this topic has become more of a political one with the express views of the candidates being important to the citizenry. Some citizens are pro-gun control and others are anti-gun control. In the wake of all of the campaign information and the pro-gun vs. anti-gun proponents, however, one must understand that lives are continuing to be lost because of the lack of gun control in this nation. This is evidenced when picking up a magazine, journal, or newspaper today. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
