Annie Get Your Gun? Is an analysis of reactionary gun control laws and their utter failure to protect Americans from violent gun crimes. Reactionary gun control legislation cannot halt gun crime because it consistently fails to address the underlying causes of gun crime; which current laws, if enforced, would prevent. Moreover, the guarantees of the Second Amendment to the United States Constituon, the right to “bear arms”, is in constant conflict with reactionary legislative proposals; resulting in the attempt to lessen the protections of the Constitution. A retrospective analysis of violent gun crimes in the United States such as the Columbine shootings, the Virginia Tech shootings, the Tucson Arizona shootings and the Aurora Colorado shootings will show that each reactionary law proposed failed strict scrutiny and offered no more protection than the existing laws. In the wake of continued gun violence, like the Sandy Hook shootings, it becomes clear that better enforcement of existing gun control laws is the key to providing safety to American citizens; not the continued proposal of reactionary gun control laws.
