Quick Outline of the Gun Control Debate
Against gun control


Arguments against gun control in expanded or any form typically rest on a wider understanding being taken of the Second Amendment rights granted to American citizens. Anti gun control arguments are typically identified with the right-wing and conservative elements of the American political scene. Arguments against gun control also generally claim that they can help to keep down crime rates by providing citizens with a means for self-defense against criminals. 
Pro gun control
The pro gun control element of American politics is typically, though not necessarily, associated with the left-liberal element of this aspect of American life, and as such control articles might be more readily secured from political magazines identified with liberalism, including The New Republic and The Nation, than from their rightwing/conservative counterparts. Gun control essays may argue about the practical and adverse consequences of permissive gun control laws, or about the theoretical, Constitutional underpinnings. 


Guns for sale
The ready accessibility of guns for sale is one aspect of the debate waged in defense of positions either for or against expanded degrees of gun control which is typically raised and proposed as a way either to increase or cut off the distribution of firearms among American citizens. A gun shop, as such, may be subject to varying forms of legal provisions imposing the necessity for measures such as waiting periods.
