Confrontation 113 (2013): 11+. Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Web. 9 Mar. 2015. This article talks about gun control and how congress should have passed more extreme legislation after the tragedy of Sandy Hook. The author argues the topic from an emotional standpoint and gives voice to the frustration of parents who have lost their children in the tragedy. The author even mentions Obama’s dissatisfaction with the lack of action taken by congress in the wake of the tragedy. She claims that America’s obsession with guns stems from a gun-lovers tendency to equate gun ownership with patriotism and freedom: “Guns equal freedom; gun ownership equals patriotism: thus goes the simple ‘logic,’ a kind of mantra that is a substitute for thought.” This source is credible because Jonna Semeiks is a professor of English at Long Island University; also, this article was published in a scholarly journal. I will use this article to show that the way that gun owners associate freedom with gun ownership prevents policy-makers from making crucial changes to gun legislation. Ben Finholt.

The Average 2 cases examined show that gun laws are often applied unequally. This article is credible because it was published in a peer-reviewed law journal. I will use this article to show how even with minor changes to gun control laws, unequal application of the laws to real cases shows the need for changes to be broader and more far-reaching.
