Will anyone be firm about Gun Controls Laws during the US Election Primaries?

gun controls law usa

‘Gun laws in the United States regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition.

State laws (and the laws of Washington, D.C. and the U.S. territories) vary considerably, and are independent of existing federal firearms laws, although they are sometimes broader or more limited in scope than the federal laws. A minority of U.S. states have created assault weapon bans that are similar to the expired federal assault weapons ban. State level laws vary significantly in their form, content, and level of restriction. Forty-four states have a provision in their state constitutions similar to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which protects the right to keep and bear arms. The exceptions are California, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, and New York. In New York, however, the statutory civil rights laws contain a provision virtually identical to the Second Amendment. Additionally, the U.S. Supreme Court held in McDonald v. Chicago that the protections of the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms for self-defense in one’s home apply against state governments and their political subdivisions.’

Now, Republican candidate Dr Ben Carson is topping the charts to be nominated as the Presidential hopeful in his party. Interestingly, he has come up with a rap song advertisement … primarily appealing to the black voters. A celebrated neurosurgeon, Dr Ben Carson, 64, is a newcomer to politics but not to the consciousness of African-Americans. His up-from-poverty journey from a fatherless home in Detroit to the operating room of Johns Hopkins made him an icon among African-American voters. So, Donald Trump takes the second place as a result of this development. Ex-Hewlett Packard Chief Carly Fiorina is close to where Jeb Bush is placed .. it is very unlikely that either of them will be nominated. In the Democrats party side, US Vice President Joe Biden is not contesting year 2016 Presidential elections at all. Barnie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are much relieved as a result of this development.

Will anyone be firm about Gun Controls Laws in the US Election Primaries and find a solution to stop rampant public killings of innocent civilians in the US ?
