In this article, the writer researches the relationship between gun control and gun trafficking in an argumentative style of work with the goal of persuading a college-educated audience of the consequences of tighter gun control. The paper uses a supply and demand argument such as in the case of alcohol and prohibition and the current issue of illegal drugs versus legal drugs. The writer concludes that gun control does not deter crime and it is just as clear that gun control has not slowed down the trafficking of guns but in fact research shows just the opposite effects of gun control. The writer maintains that there are several provisions within the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights that are not cohesive with gun control laws and that the citizens of the United States must take issue through contacting their senators and representatives concerning gun control legislation in the future.
