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
happened. While removing guns might have prevented the shootings from happening,

The United Nations has come up with the Arms Trade Treaty (needs a reference).
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
treaty will reveal gun laws Obama really supports." Fox News July 18 2012, A1. Web. 3
