Gun control article

Some new gun control articles have come up recently. These articles have a refreshing approach to the subject of gun control. They do not stop with listing gun control pros and cons and leaving it to the readers to draw their own conclusions. These gun control articles make a threadbare analysis of the issue of gun control. They do deal with gun control facts like other articles on the subject do. But they also go into the attitude of the people interested in the issue and examine their actions objectively. This is what I find refreshing about these gun control articles.

I would like to share some of what I have read in these gun control articles. These articles carried some shocking gun death statistics relating to the number of deaths from gun crime in the United States. Every year, about 30,000 people have been dying of gun deaths in the United States. Another disturbing fact relating to gun crime statistics I came across in these gun control articles was that nearly 40 percent of the children are aware of the whereabouts of the guns in their houses. I find it disturbing because the prospect of some children getting hold of guns owned by their parents is so real that we need to consider the consequences of such a situation.

This was not the only disturbing news. Another piece of gun crime statistics I found in these gun control articles was that in areas that had a high proportion of gun owning population, the likelihood of women and children becoming victims of gun violence was found to be quite high. With so much of evidence showing that allowing people to own guns with no restrictions can only cause grief to many people including the family members of the gun owners, one would expect the pro gun ownership groups to relent. But these groups continue to maintain that guns will give protection to the owners and thus will indirectly bring down crime, despite the fact that there is no evidence to support this theory. In fact, all evidence shows only the opposite to be true.

Whatever gun control articles may say, organizations like the NRA (National Rifles Association) continue to maintain their opposition to gun control. Given this kind of an attitude, the NRA can only be considered a highly paid lobby, though it may claim to be an association of sportsmen.
