Is gun ownership a fundamental right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, or is it a misunderstood historical artifact that opens the door to danger and violence? Some contend that guns should be loosely regulated, while others call for stricter laws and, sometimes, outright bans. But does gun control really work, and who is responsible for gun violence? Plus, with new technological advances in weaponry, what does the future hold for the gun control debate?
