ABSTRACT
The article discusses gun control in the U.S. as of April 2013. According to the article, groups such as the Mayors Against Illegal Guns political group of the politician Michael Bloomberg, individuals such as Sandy Phillips, whose daughter was shot in the 2012 Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting, and politicians such as Joe Manchin support gun control despite the influence of the U.S. National Rifle Association. Topics include declining gun ownership rates in the U.S., background check legislation that was defeated in the U.S. Senate in 2013, and the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
