This paper focuses on a critical issue that has plagued our nation for many years. It has been one of the most divisive issues outside of abortion. The topic of gun control and how to approach it brings out two highly emotional and passionate sides. Despite the emotions that may flare up, it is important to remain objective on the facts. By taking into full consideration the arguments and research provided by gun control activists and gun rights activists, a silver lining is found that provides the answers the country has been looking for years. I do this by seeking the facts about what has worked and what has failed to keep Americans safe from gun violence through their behavior, as well as state and federal legislation. I use quantitative and qualitative methods to reveal the full picture of gun violence in America.
