ABSTRACT
The article discusses the causes afflicting the American gun control debate and to offer a possible remedy. According to the authors, the debate has been marked by two misconceptions; one relating to what the debate is all about, and the other on how the citizens shall discuss when they are divided in the issues of fundamental values. The solution for the issue that the authors suggested is the formation of a new knowledge for the gun debate.
