Final Proposal

For my research paper on the problem with mass shootings in America, I plan to delve into the difference between gun control laws in the United States and other similar countries. I will also be researching the number of firearm-related deaths, specifically in mass shootings which are categorized by the FBI as “four or more murdered during an event with no “cooling-off period” between the murders”, in the United States as opposed to other countries. When making this comparison I will also be sure to keep the abundant population of the United States in mind since many other countries do not have as vast of a population. I am looking to distinguish a clear pattern between the lack of legislation regarding gun control and the number of mass shootings in the United States. I will also be researching the current gun control legislation that is in place and where the hold up is and why nothing is being put into action in society to counteract mass shootings. This is relevant research because it is affecting so many people in the United States and is a crisis that needs to be dealt with through policy instead of thoughts and prayers.
