According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, there have been 1,744 mass shootings in the United States since 2013. The Second Amendment grants citizens of the United States the right to bear arms, but gun control laws vary from state to state. Many people lobby for stricter federal gun control in order to curb gun-related deaths, while others perceive regulation as an infringement on rights. This timely edition takes a look at one of the most contested issues in American government and society today: the policing and regulation of firearms. Individual chapters will cover the history of gun control in the United States, the spectrum of opinions on firearms regulation, the meaning of the Second Amendment, arguments in favor of and those against tighter gun control, and various types of legislation being considered.
