Gun control raises legal issues cutting across a host of subjects central to the US legal system: constitutional powers and rights, federalism concerns and municipal autonomy, state and local legislation and regulation, law enforcement and criminal sanctions, regulatory approaches and civil liability. Underlying these more particular issues are larger questions about the difficulty to reach political and social consensus, the unique situation in the United States (when compared with other countries), and even the relationship between political freedom and citizenship access to firearms.
