Your question asks for an opinion. My opinion is that gun control laws are based on a flawed belief that a person who will break laws regarding murder, robbery and rape will obey another law that says they may not have a gun. There are already about 20,000 Federal, State, and local gun laws on the books in the US. Gun control laws frequently do little except keep law abiding people from being able to defend themselves.

Yes. Most cities have more onerous gun control laws than the United States does. However, many of them still have higher crime rates than the US does, and within the US, the states and cities with the strictest gun control laws often have the highest crime rates, such as Chicago and Washington, D.C.

They have gun laws. Whether they actually have the words "gun control" within any of their firearms legislature, I don't know, but they do have gun control.

Depends on WHICH gun control legislation you mean. In the US, there are already several thousand "gun control" laws on the books. However, they do not work. They DO keep honest people from being able to defend themselves from criminals.

Inadequate enforcement of existing laws.

There are thousands of laws that relate to gun control, and cover every state. Those laws have been there for years.

It's arguable that the current gun control laws in the US are stretching the constitution to the breaking point. Anything much stricter and it would be impossible to maintain the fiction that they're compatible with the 2nd amendment.

Pennsylvania Wow, I thought It'd be Alaska or Texas....

LEA's enforce the laws.

The B.A.T.F.E enforce gun control laws.

The Legislative, but why make gun control laws any way?

People that believe that criminals who break laws about murder and robbery will obey a law about guns.

Your questions asks for an opinion- here is mine. Gun control seeks to control the behavior of people by controlling things. In the US, there are several thousand gun laws already on the books. Some people feel there should be more laws. Some people feel the laws do not work- but keep honest people from being able to defend themselves. The difference in opinions is the controversy.

Literally, tens if not hundreds of thousands of laws. My copy of US state gun laws is about 2 inches thick. It is estimated that there are more than 20,000 gun laws in the US- and you are asking about "around the world".

Yes- there are more than 2000 state, local and national laws relating to the sale and possession of firearms.

People that are in favor of creating more laws regulating the manufacture, sale, and possession of guns are Pro Gun Control. Now, personal opinion- This is a belief that you can control BEHAVIOR by regulating THINGS. The US already has over 20,000 firearms laws in Federal, State, and local level. When someone violates a law, politicians rush to enact more laws.

Most laws aren't enforced.

Negative. Because, by definition, criminals will not obey gun control laws, honest citizens need access to firearms to protect themselves from the armed criminals. Gun control laws have never succeeded in protecting honest citizens. They have been most successful being used by oppressive governments to suppress dissent by their own citizens. Hitler, Stalin, and numerous other strong leaders recognized this and instituted strong gun control laws early in their regimes. Gun laws only increase crime.

Gun control refers to laws and regualtions that limit ownership, carrying and usage of firearms. Gun rights refers to the opposite- of the right of people to own firearms.

A person against gun control. A pro-gun advocate. A pro-2A advocate (in the US).

McCain is opposed to any further restriction in gun laws.
