Gun debate, take two: The U.S. vs. the rest

I recently gave attention to the hot topic issue of gun control, and the policies and ideas for reformation.

Prevent gun-related tragedies by preventing violence

There are still many debates as to who was behind it and what its direct purpose was, but the gauche representation and false depictions succeeded to outrage, confuse, and...
