The paper introduces this topic by highlighting how it is an issue of passionate debate in the United States. It shows the differing beliefs prevalent throughout the country and discusses how the debate over gun ownership is based on the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and how if the right to own a gun interferes with public safety, then that right can morally be abridged in order to protect public safety. The paper concludes that evidence seems to show that the availability of guns in the United States contributes greatly to the number of injuries and fatalities by firearms.

From the Paper:

"In a 2000 article, David Lampo, the publications director at the Cato Institute, points out that the surge of school shootings during recent years re-energized the gun control movement, which even led to a coalition of gun control groups organizing a "Million Mom March" in Washington, D.C. (Lampo). Lampo believes that events such as this are designed to stir emotions rather than promote rational thought, and that when facts are viewed, it is easy to understand why the anti-gun lobby relies on emotion rather than logic to present its case (Lampo)."
