ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the debate among House Democrats and House Republicans concerning gun control in the U.S. Dick Gephardt and other leading House Democrats have demanded for a vote on gun safety measures. Gephardt insists that the House reconsider a bill on the issue. A bill was passed by republicans to counter such campaign. A poll revealed that majority of U.S. citizens would prefer a political candidate promising tougher enforcement over promising tighter controls. Only a small percentage expressed the opposite.
