Rhetorical Analysis on Gun Control Generally, gun laws regulate the sale, use and possession of firearms and ammunition, and state laws differ significantly in their content, form and level of restriction. Gun owners are subject to gun laws of the state in which they are in, and not solely their state of residence (Sullivan, 2013). Intense debates in the United States gyrate around how strict gun regulations should be, and mass shootings, for instance the terrible shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut, always make headlines. With every new tragedy, questions always arise regarding whether those firearm victims would still be alive if the country had much stricter gun laws. This paper provides a rhetorical analysis on gun control and analytically discusses whether gun laws would prevent shooting sprees.
