Summary In contrast with other developed nations, the United States has an enduring gun culture. The individual right to own a gun is enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Constitution, yet the amendment's meaning and value is deeply contested. Opinions vary depending on one's understanding of how active the government ought to be in ensuring security. Despite this, gun rights are limited by various legislative efforts and judicial decisions. Prohibitions on ownership for some have resulted in illicit markets. Government has worked to preserve order by permitting gun ownership for some but not others through three broad strategies: raising costs; regulating ownership; and regulating/defining use. Each of these efforts has benefits, but also costs that must be accounted for when attempting to reduce crime. This case explores what questions need to be asked and what considerations ought to be factored in when setting policy.
