Gun Control For Dummies - A Beginner's Guide

Before you form an opinion on the current debate, shouldn't you make sure that what you think you know is really accurate?

Gun and Gun Control Facts Test - How Much Do You Really Know?

Any laws passed by the Congress and signed by the Pres. Obama are certain to be challenged by gun rights groups.  Sen. Feinstein pointed out that no one challenged her last ban, in effect from 1994-2004.  What has changed since then, and what constitutional challenges do gun control laws face?

The administration and other gun control advocates are arguing that "Assault Weapons" are not used by "sportsmen" and "target shooters" - so they should not be concerned if they are banned.  So far it isn't working.  Why not?

Gun control advocates argue that by limiting magazine capacities, lives can be saved.  Do the facts support this idea?

On December 11th, 2012 a man entered the Clackamas Town Center near Happy Valley, Oregon with a stolen AR15 rifle intent upon mass murder.  His killing spree was cut short after two people were killed.  What caused him to stop shooting other people and take his own life?

What The National Media Left Out Of The Portland Mall Shooting Story

The purpose of gun control is supposedly to save lives.  The argument is that if fewer people are allowed to own guns, there will be fewer guns and fewer guns will result in fewer murders.  Do the facts support this theory?
