Gun Control
Carter Garvey and Max White

One side believes that certain guns should be banned, to prevent shootings, killings, ect.
The other side believes all people should have the right to bear arms, as stated in the 2nd Amendment.
The Solution
About 67% of murders in 2008 were committed with firearms.
40% of all U.S. homes have guns.
57% of Americans say there should be a major ban.
The percent ownership in 1977 was 55%. The percent ownership in 2011 was 36%.
More Information
A study published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy discovered that nations with more guns tend to have less crime.
Close to 33,000 Americans were victims of gun-related deaths in 2011.
The United States is #1 in the world in gun ownership, and yet it is only 28th in the world in gun murders per 100,000 people.
Overall, guns in the United States are used 80 times more often to prevent crime than they are to take lives.
Over the past 20 years, gun sales have absolutely exploded, but homicides with firearms are down 39 percent .
Almost every mass shooting that has occurred in the United States since 1950 has taken place in a state with strict gun control laws
Our solution to gun control is to have a concealed carry law in every state
The concealed carry law is when you cannot carry a gun concealed in public unless you have a permit
Stats show that not only does the law prevent gun crime, but it prevents crime all around
When the law was put into states, stats show that murder fell by about 8 percent, rapes fell by 5 percent, and aggravated assaults fell by 7 percent
It won't be perfect, but it will help
