ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the need to impose stricter regulation at gun shows in the U.S. Citing the shooting deaths of 32 people at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, he desires for a truly effective gun control. It is because for him, the culture of guns verges on the inexplicable in the U.S. It is also at gun shows that the risks of deadly weapons being sold are increased.
