Gun violence and gun control in Texas
| Gun violence and gun control in Texas ： ウィキペディア英語版|
The state of Texas is considered to have some of the nation's most lenient gun laws. Public concerns over gun control in Texas have increased in recent years as Mexican drug cartels continue to commit violent crimes near the Texas border with Mexico. The debate over gun control laws generally produces three arguments:
*Those who believe gun control laws are effective in reducing gun-related accidents and crime and should be enforced by the government.
*Those who believe gun control laws are ineffective in reducing gun-related accidents and crime and thus support fewer gun control measures.
*Those who believe that the private ownership of guns reduces crime.
== Federal gun laws ==
The majority of criminal justice activity in the United States takes place at the state and local levels. The federal government of the United States supports these local efforts through national leadership and financial assistance. However, the federal government has used its regulatory authority over interstate affairs to prohibit activities on a nationwide basis that are regarded as contributing to criminal activity. Title IV (State Firearms Control Assistance) and the 1968 Gun Control Act were two federal reactions to handgun violence. More recently, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act was passed in 1993 and sets national minimum requirements for firearms purchases. The main focus of the Brady Act is to prevent felons from obtaining firearms.
