“Gun control,” according to Britannica.com, refers to any “legal measure intended to prevent or restrict the possession or use of guns, particularly firearms. In most developed countries, gun control is strict and uncontroversial. In others, it is a hot political issue, pitting those who regard it as necessary for public safety against those who view it as a dangerous infringement of personal liberty.”
