Two scholars of Congress and public opinion dissect the reasons gun control finally passed and was signed into law, after decades of inability to enact such legislation.
Analysis of the 10 years in which the US banned sales of assault weapons shows that it correlates with a drop in mass shooting deaths – a trend that reversed as soon as the ban expired.
The shooters in the Buffalo and Uvalde massacres were both 18, and legally purchased assault rifles. This is fueling calls to raise the age when someone can purchase this weapon from 18 to 21.
After mass shootings, politicians in Washington have failed to pass new gun control legislation, despite public pressure. But laws are being passed at the state level, largely to loosen restrictions.
A school shooting in a small Texas town was almost as deadly as the worst such event in US history. Such shootings have increased in frequency over the last few years.
Important differences mark the gun control policies of the Conservative and Liberal parties, in particular.
Did the COVID-19 pandemic have an impact on the mass shooting in Nova Scotia?
One hundred years ago, the inventor of the most deadly weapon of the 20th century was born in Russia. Now more than 100 million of his namesake guns have been manufactured and used around the world.
Some Canadian gun advocates claim military-style assault weapons like the AR-15 have never been used to commit crimes in Canada. That’s inaccurate.
Canada must decide if modern semi-automatic rifles should be widely available to its citizens. Our current classification system for such guns is irrational.
