Adam Gopnik has been a journalist for the New Yorker since 1986. he has also co-wrote books and wrote many of his own. In his article the simple truth about gun control he talks about how if America would make more gun control laws then there would be less gun related deaths and violence. he also states that eventually we could become a gun free society. it may be true that increased gun control with decrease gun related violence, but by how much? there is and always will be a black market that will allow criminals to get gun to hurt good innocent people. the good guys will not use the black market so the only way they can protect themselves is by being able to legally purchase firearms. Also even if we did find a way to prevent all criminals from attaining guns it would stop anything people would use other weapons to hurt people. this guy was right about how in some places that have gun control laws the gun related violence has gone down but he failed to mention that in a lot of these places violence involving other weapons has increased.
