The argument for gun regulation has been on the table for years. On one side of the argument there are those who are in favor of placing restricting on guns, and those who are fighting against the regulation of guns. Those in favor of gun restrictions, such as this author Molly Ivins believes gun control can reduce or eliminate gun violence. She starts off by stating she is not anti-gun, but pro-knife. What I gather is that she is not anti-violence, but that she would like to see less gun violence. So, she is not against killing, but only killing with guns. She goes on to say that she is a civil libertarian and that she supports the Second Amendment. And she believes it means exactly what it says.
