This paper contends that the large amount of gun crimes that result in death in the U.S. is the direct correlation of the lack of effective gun control in the country, due to organizations like the National Rifle
Association (NRA), which are politically and socially powerful enough to block legislation that is not good for their organization. To research this assumption, it looks at several instances in the extant literature on the subject, from both reputable web-based resources (such as collections of Supreme Court cases on gun control and analysis
of the cases) and print-based resources.

From the Paper:

"O'Meara's article also looks at the NRA and issues of gun control. The author points out how the courts must be made to address the issue directly and not give in to the tendency to sidestep the large issue and concentrate on legal technicalities. A workable and enforceable law will thus be devised with the cooperation of advocates, legislators, lobbyists, and the courts, that will control gun ownership more effectively and reduce the risk that guns present to all of society in terms of harm."
