Gun Control

While researching gun control in America we are becoming more and more

stricter on our policies. Of course people have different viewpoint on the subjects.

It is definitely a subject that we need to take very serious. Gun control is a right that

every law-abiding citizen should have since our founding fathers made it our second

amendment for a reason.

The recent mass shooting such as the movie theatre in Colorado have made

people pro-gun control. In those situations, we have to look at all sides of what

Most countries such as China, Russia, Great Britain, and France have banned guns. The

Obama administration was working with these countries to help write the treaty. Unlike

the parliamentary card communist countries in America it has to receive a two thirds vote

in order to become a law which is very unlikely. The main purpose of the Arms Trade

Treaty is to stop terrorist and rebels from getting weapons (John, Lott. "UN gun control
