ABSTRACT
The article offers arguments for and against stricter gun control laws in the U.S. Those supporting gun control mention the annual number of deaths from gun violence and argue that background checks on every gun sale will prevent easy access for people with mental health issues and criminal pasts. Those in opposition advocate the use of firearms for self-defense and argue that laws won't deter criminals from obtaining guns. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also noted.
