The article offers information on several issues related to gun culture in the U.S. According to a Government Accountability Office report, nearly 900 people on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) terror watch list applied for and received a certificate to buy a gun in the country between 2004 and 2009. Since June 2008, cities in the U.S. have seen the 20,000 local gun regulations enacted over the years begin to slip from their grip, one by one.
