A Rational Take on Gun Control

Tensions over gun control in the US have spiked, becoming more controversial, divisive, and polarizing than ever. The arguments from both political parties over-generalize the issue, misrepresent alternative viewpoints, and inaccurately divide our country into two schools of thought. In response to this madness we consider a rational take on gun control, arguing that neither political party is necessarily right or wrong, but that each party simply has different priorities.
