ABSTRACT
The article explores the cultural, regional and racial impacts of gun control laws in the United States. An article by B. Bruce-Briggs, a literate economist, stresses that there is practically no correlation between gun control and crime control. According to the author, the great majority of the American people favor gun control. Although it is correct that most Americans who have guns use them for sport, a great number of them, 35 per cent, acknowledge that they keep guns for the purpose of self-defense.
