Gun Control Americans are faced with an ever-growing problem of violence.
Our streets have become a battleground where the elderly are beaten for

drive-by shootings. We cannot

defend themselves, we find that criminals start looking for other
victims out of fear that they will become the victims themselves. We must
work to reduce crime in the world, but we should look at the problem

control laws are neither realistic, nor effective in reducing crime. Therefore,
we must direct our efforts toward controlling crime, not controlling legal
ownership of firearms.
