Many opponents to gun reform opponents insist that lawmakers can do nothing to curb gun violence. Washington Post contributor Robert Gebelhoff begs to differ. Citing a number of compelling studies and statistics from the United States and other developed countries, he demonstrates that several easy-to-implement gun control measures could save a significant number of lives every year – without taking away the right of law-abiding US citizens to bear arms. getAbstract believes people with various views on guns in America might agree on these measures.
In this summary, you will learn
- How gun control can lessen gun-related crime, suicide and other acts of violence; and
- What types of policies limit gun-related injuries and deaths most significantly.
