Policy Evaluation:

gun control Guns are simply tools. The problem behind it is the abuse of it. Therefore it is imperative that there is control over the use of them

Recording 1 The NRA, the government, and the gun-using U.S. citizens are all major stakeholders. This includes a number of interest groups supporting gun control.

Recording 2 It was originally a non-debated issue. In fact, It was strongly supported by the Framers.
Over 200 years ago, when the Founding Fathers drafted the Second Amendment, no one questioned the need for private gun ownership. The Framers actually considered private firearms to be essential to protecting personal liberty, both as a means of opposing foreign threats and also as a check against excessive government power.

After assassinations, riots and public shootings. In general, domestic violence. Thes problems rose and increased with time. The NRA (National Rifle Association), the CDF (Children's Defense Fund), CSGV (Coalation to Stop Gun Violence), VPC (Violence Policy Center.), the CCRKBA (Citizens Commitee Right to Keep and Bear Arms), Firearms and Liberty, GOA (Gun Owners Association), SAF (second amendment foundation). The government has made a number of restrictions and rules for gun control all throughout the U.S. .David Keene, the president of the NRA is a large contributor to the decisions and actions made by the group.

Recording 3 The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA or GCA68) was the first government action on the issue. The office. Now officially called the Gun Control Policy The federal government and the Executive branch had the most influence on the decision. It was part of President Johnson's Great Society series of programs and was spurred in passage by the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X,Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King

Recording 5 The Firearms Consultation Panel Following the introduction of the Criminal Justice Act 2006[32] and its extensive and complex rewriting of the Firearms Act, the Minister for Justice at the time (Micheal McDowell) instituted the Firearms Consultation Panel, a panel chaired by the Minster through the Principal Officer of the Department of Justice's Firearms Section, which comprised representatives from the Gardai, Department of Sport, firearms dealers, all the national governing bodies of the shooting sports, and other stakeholders in the Firearms Act (such as insurance providers)(Wikipedia)

Recording 6 They restricted gun use, gun purchase, sale, and import/exports. I think that it is rather effective. If t you take into account the fallacy of the population due to human nature, You can see the problems that are destined to arise...

Recording 7 It started as true reform, because it was a huge change from what they had. But it became incremental with the large amount of changes that was needed and the progressive alterations. I learned that human nature will almost ruin any policy or agenda. The fact that we are fallible creatures clearly shows that rules were made to be broken.
