A controversial set of policies in the United States particularly. It is essentially the mentality behind Prohibition applied to firearms. And oddly, many of its proponents say you have a right to drink alcohol, though it is not specifically inscribed in the Bill of Rights, while ownership of firearms is enumerated as a right in said Bill of Rights.
Gun control amuses me. They'll throw the book at a licensed gun dealer who makes a spelling error on one of their forms. But federal agencies lost over 1000 firearms last year and I don't see the BATFE auditing the FBI.

1.) The reason liberal democrats should never be elected to Congress or the U.S. Presidency.

2.) The reason Chicago is the murder capital of the nation.

3.) The reason why innocent people are easily murdered.

4.) The reason why the NRA has millions of members.
Gun control is a violation of the 2nd Amendment and freedom as a whole. Putting into place gun control only makes law-abiding citizens defenseless against criminals who will still find a way to harm and kill. Crime usually goes up in places where gun control exists, such as Chicago and the United Kingdom. It also causes people to be less happy and less physically active, as millions of people engage in recreational sports involving firearms. Liberal democrats can never be allowed to govern this nation as their policies usually call for gun control, which inhibits human freedom and ignores the laws of the U.S. Constitution. Remember that one of the first things Hitler took away from people was their guns.

The idea that minorities will be safer when only the rampart division is allowed to have guns.
Gun control laws in the Old South were only enforced against black people.

The systematic restriction of the rights of Americans granted by the 2nd Amendment in the name of reducing crime. Gun Control is traditionally practiced by liberals but the rising popularity of neo-conservatism is also putting gun control on the agenda for most "conservatives." Gun Control ranges from the simplest of gun registration to an outright ban on a specific type of gun or guns in general. Gun Control is often implimented shortly before a totalitarian leader begins opressing a groups of people (German Holocaust, Stalin's Russia, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Darfur etc).

The fact is that Gun Control does not work. Any time new gun control laws are passed, crime rates go up. Whenever gun control laws are repealed, crime rates go down or stay the same. The simple truth is that if guns are outlawed, then only outlaws will have guns. By definition, criminals (the group that gun control laws seem to attempt to disarm (in addition to the general public)), don't follow the law, thus making the gun control laws ineffective on them.
Never in the history of the United States (and most other countries for that matter) has a gun control policy decreased gun crime, gun injuries and/or gun deaths.

Also, maintaining control of your gun (i.e. muzzle control) as to ensure the barrel is not pointed in anybody's direction, ever, even when it's unloaded; and yet you can still manuever it to hit game when the opportunity arises. Excercising proper gun control is important because when you're out in the field, you need to be able to remain safe because that is the most important part of using any firearm. That and it's usually a good 50 miles to the nearest hospital and nobody needs a bellyfull of #7 steel shot.

Proper muzzle control is accomplished by making sure you are always 100% in control of where you aim your gun's muzzle and that it isn't pointed at any human, road, vehicle, or house (with rifles, do not point it at a house even miles away). The safest place to point a gun is down, at the ground, or up and away from anyone. Also, don't put your finger on the trigger until you are literally going to shoot the game in the next instant. This saves lives.
Bob exercised poor gun control. He got two pheasants, a grouse, and a quail. And his buddy Ted's GMC Yukon Denali XL.

Ted exercised good gun control. He got three pheasants and a sparrow that got in the way. And $6000 to repair his SUV.
