The art of effectively hitting a target with a bullet.
When the sniper shot down the helicopter he had good gun control.

Gun control is the phenomenon that takes place whenever a gun is drawn and/or fired is any situation. No matter how tense the atmosphere may be as soon as the gun comes out everything will suddenly be under control. Also refers to the similar act of using the threat of or actual use of a gun in order to gain and maintain control of an individual.
I thought that bank robbery was gonna end with dead or at least injured hostages until I saw a guy in the crowd pull out two glock pistols and within three seconds flat everything was under control. When they got the robber outside they pulled a shotgun on him and he walked like a scared little girl right where they told him to. Amazing how quickly good gun control can change a situation.

gun control is the term used when describing restrictions designed to lower crime and violence.

many of the laws and restrictions that are placed under the category of gun control have little to no affect on actual violence, and in many cases have the opposite intended effect.

these include firearms bans, magazine capacity limits, licensing, background checks, and so on.

sadly, in most places gun control is used as a tool to make it seem like the problem has been solved, but it's more akin to painting over rust to hide it from view, allowing that rust to spread farther and preventing repairs.
person one :we need to ban guns to stop gun violence! vote for more gun control!

person two : we need to ban drugs to stop people from taking drugs! vote to continue the war on drugs!

Alright, the way I see it, this country really doesn't need too much gun control these days.
But I'm tired of liberals and conservatives bitching about it. See Liberals want everyone to beleive that all conservatives are just a bunch killers who want anyone to be able to own a gun, including little kids and criminals which is NOT TRUE! And Conservatives try to make people beleive that all Liberals are a bunch of constitution-hating, nazi-esque fascists that want to take away not just are 2nd amendment rights, but all of our rights guarenteed by the Bill Of Rights, which is NOT TRUE! Now i and most other people would agree that we should have a law that doesn't take away 2nd amendment rights from law-abiding citizens, but at the same time makes it near impossible for a criminal to get their hands on a gun.
Before conservatives start complaining about liberal agenda, and before liberals start complaining about Conservative Hate Culture, they should take the time out to see that most people are quite neutral when it comes to topics like gun control, or abortion, and most other controversial topics.

The Best idea America never passed. Common sense legislation that has repeatedly been blocked by the terrorist organization known as the NRA (National Rifle Association), a group much worse tha their sister group, the IRA (Irish Republican Army). Simply put, Gun control is the idea that psychopaths, neo-nazis, and other quote "american boy" groups shouldn't be allowed possesion of weapons like Ausalt Rifles, Flamethrowers, RPGs, Grenades, Sub-machine guns, Mini-guns, Sniper Rifles, high capacity magazines, and other weapons that would only make sense as the possesions of someone intent on mass murder or the establishment of a para-millitary force, like the NRA and IRA. Unfortunatly, these terrorists have managed to worm their way into the American government by convincing politicians that if they vote for gun control they'll be booted out of office. This is also one of the reasons that America is a laughing stock abroad, due to our lagging mental capacity in seeing that mass shootings couldn't happen without massive access to weapons, and our obsesion with the idea that everyone is going to drag an AK-47 and full boy armor around everywhere they go, and that his behavior is in some way normal. Yes, people kill people, but gun's help them do it.
No significant examples of gun control due to the actions of the NRA, but here are some things it could have helped prevent:

Gun control is an idea constantly rejected by almost all republicans. They claim that they need to exercise their right to bear arms, because this apparently makes them and their country safer. This is simply bullshit.

Because the United States has about five times the suicides and five times the homicides related to firearms as other first world countries. No, that's not a a body count based on population, it's a percentage.

Basically, the fact that over a third of you have guns and practically no restrictions on them makes your country a hell of a scary place, for a developed nation. So, go ahead republicans, vote this down. But the truth stands!
Republican bullshit about gun laws causing violence is exactly that, bullshit. Go look up some information for yourself, you redneck idiots, and you will see that you are wrong.
