ABSTRACT
The article examines the political and social debate over the extent of gun control to be implemented in the U.S. The debate is said to usually revolve around the effectiveness of gun control laws in relation to reducing violent crime, the right to carry arms to protect citizens and prevent crime, as well as the interpretation of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution on the issue of whether or not the right to carry guns extends to private citizens or only to a so-called well-regulated militia.
