The purpose of this article was to discuss the recent decision in the Senate to expand gun control. The article discussed how the Senate could not come to a bipartisan conclusion. This therefore led to the final vote of 54-46 in Senate that would not allow for stricter gun control laws. This relates to our topic just in the fact that it is dealing with gun control. This article is considered to be an opposing article. The author writes this article from the standpoint of the gun-control reform being “dead.” This article is not in favor of our topic. We are for gun control. The Senate’s vote works against our cause to prevent gun violence. One positive from this article is the fact that those individuals that are in the Senate that voted for stricter gun control laws will plan to reconvene and have a second vote.
