stricter gun control despite opposition. Baker and Shear explain that Obama plans to enforcelegislation and gain public support that will facilitate and result in stricter gun control. They alsoconvey the overwhelming effects gun violence has had on our nation recently. Not ignoring theother side of the argument, Baker and Shear include pro-
gun rights politician‟s opinions.
I chose this article due its constant focus on the effects of gun violence, the ongoing guncontrol debate and more specifically how President Obama is handling the issue. Baker and
Shear appeal to the audience‟s intellect and establish credibility throughout the article. Baker and
Shear effectively inform their audience of the consequences of gun violence on our nation, the
ure plans of enforcing stricter control despite opposition thus proving a viablesource to argue gun control is in fact necessary to prevent future gun violence in the UnitedStates. This article will prove helpful when I write about the importance of enforcing stricter guncontrol in order to prevent further gun violence in our nation.

Bennett, Kraft and Grubb focus on and study university faculty‟s feelings towards the
idea of being allowed a concealed gun in public places such as college campuses and churches.They conduct a survey in which faculty and administrators are tested over their opinions on thecurrent gun law being considered. The results demonstrate a majority of those tested opposeallowing concealed weaponry on college campuses. Bennett, Kraft and Grubb also found that a
person‟s opinion on the matter depends on their political affiliation and if they own guns or not.
