Who is in control? Gun control is a big issue that we as a nation are facing today. Just recently an elementary school was involved in a shooting, where a fourteen year old got a hold of a gun and shot his father and then the school. We also have had many incidents of school shootings over the year. Today the second amendment states the right to bear arms, meaning we the people had the right to carry a gun for protection. In 1995, Alfonzo Lopez was arrested for carrying a gun to school. He was later arrested for possession of a gun and violating the Gun-Free Zone Act. . However; Lopez appealed that the Gun-Free Zone Act was an unconstitutional act on congress, which made the appeal go to the Supreme Court.
