Gunning for a Fight

The article reports on gun control in the U.S. Since the early 1990s, gun control has been a spent force in politics, with the nation's crime rate declining. Congressional leaders let a ban on assault weapons lapse in 2004, weakening federal law and making it clear that no new restrictions would pass. The state gun laws most often adopted in recent years do not limit the possession of firearms, but rather guarantee the right to carry one.
