Gun Control

It’s 2025, and the Second Amendment is more in question than ever. In the US, more than four fifths of all murders involve a firearm, as does more than half of all suicide attempts. Over 465 million guns are in circulation, quite a lot of them illegally obtained. With all this in mind, the debate on gun control has elevated to a state no one thought possible. On one side, the liberals cannot emphasize enough the necessary limitations on accessing a firearm; on the other, the conservatives stand by the Second Amendment, a law that’s lasted the test of time. This is where you come in. It’s your job as a Senator to debate and work together across the aisle to develop a holistic solution capable of keeping all American citizens safe. So, how will you change our nation this February?
