The above link leads to a PDF of an article titled “Handgun Prohibition and The Original Meaning of the Second Amendment” published in Michigan Law Review by Don B. Kates, Jr., who is a prominent legal scholar. It was published in 1983 but is still useful as Kates uses extensive research and references to discuss how the second amendment is being interpreted by those involved in the debate (yes, this debate was happening over 30 years ago).

This links to an article on the Cato Institute’s website by one of their constitutional researchers. The Cato Institute is a “Think Tank” which does research around government, public policy, and law, among many other things (you will likely find more articles on this topic there). The purpose of this article is to change the perspective of how one views the gun control debate – not gun control itself, but the debate surrounding it. The author argues that the debate is not around whether or not banning guns is constitutional, or whether increased gun control will reduce the amount of gun-related violence in the U.S., but that this debate is actually between two different view points on the role of government.

According to this article, the country of Iceland “ranks 15th in the world in terms of legal per capita gun ownership.” Yet, the purpose of this article is to examine Iceland’s astonishingly low crime rate – and more specifically the low rate of gun violence. A large portion of their population owns guns, yet they experience a fraction of gun-related crimes we do here in the U.S. There are major differences between Iceland and the U.S., but this article will be useful to any argument against gun control.

Much of what you need to know for this one is in the title, “Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware.” This is a link to a Pew Research Center study done comparing the public’s thoughts on gun homicide rates and the actual data available. As explained in the title, the public perception of this hot-button issue is inaccurate, and there are many ways that could have an impact on the gun control debate. Click here for MLA/APA citations.
