每次选举都有总统候选人在枪支法律问题上争论不休，有些人支持，有些人无视，并引用公民保护自己的自由和权利。即使数百次选举已经结束，并且滥用私人枪支导致的死亡人数保持不变，甚至在某些情况下还在上升(《枪支管制和枪支权利》，2016年)，但收效甚微。Miller, Azrael， & Hemenway(2002)的一项研究发现，在美国地区和州发生的杀人案中，68%左右是用枪杀死的，其中绝大多数使用手枪。这是该研究的一部分，该研究显示1988-1997年间发生的凶杀案数量，尽管是十年前的事了，但是生命的损失永远不能与任何价值等同起来。这表明枪支法是这里的一个主要关切事项，必须优先重新审议和修订枪支法，不论政府采取了什么优先事项。
Every election has presidential candidates battling over the issue of gun laws, with some supporting it, some ignoring it and citing freedom and rights of citizens to protect themselves. Little has been achieved even when hundreds of elections have gone through and the deaths originating from the misuse of private owners of gun have remained constant or rather rising at some instance (“Gun Control and Gun Rights”, 2016). According to a research conducted by Miller, Azrael, & Hemenway (2002) it was found that about 68% homicides occurring in the US region and states were killed with guns, of which handguns were the large majority used. This is one part of the research that shows the number of homicides occurring during 1988-1997, though a decade ago, but a loss of life can never be equated with any amount of value. This indicates that gun laws are a major concern here and must be revisited and revised on a priority, irrespective of whatever priority the government has adopted.
In one recent latest research conducted by Grinshteyn & Hemenway (2016) who compared the death rates of the US with other populous OECD countries, US was found to have 7 times higher homicide rates higher than any other country, which in turn was driven by a gun based homicide rate of 25.2 percent higher than all other OECD countries. Is this not enough for the government to easy sale of guns to private owners, and are the deaths not enough to encourage the government to immediately revisit gun laws? It is enough, but the laws have been not discussed appropriately, and are considered as less important. These violent deaths are an issue of human rights, public health, and government policy initiatives, providing enough evidence for correcting it, but falls on deaf ears every time its importance is justified.
