Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
In light of recent debates and trending national gun topics, shooting.org has launched a worldwide forum to facilitate greater discussion on guns, gun ownership and the shooting sports, on its web site, http://www.shooting.org. The forum encourages users to discuss the various current issues surrounding firearms, including the latest in gun control reform. The site is a place for an online public to come together for accurate information and an exchange of ideas pertinent to guns and gun use. With an estimated 32 percent of American households in ownership of a gun, according to a 2011 University of Chicago Research study, the forum creates an important avenue to talk about the gun-related events that impact the nation. The site, http://www.shooting.org is available to the public and provides information about training and instruction, shooting facilities, and laws, and regulations.
Much of the talk in the nation has recently focused on second amendment rights and the call for reformation of gun laws, by some. Recommendations by the task force headed by Vice President, Joe Biden, are calling for a federal ban on high-capacity magazines and rifles and requiring background checks for all gun purchases, including those made online and at gun shows. The task force would also recommend making gun trafficking a federal offense. Beyond the federal debate over gun regulation, several states are entering the arena with proposals for gun legislation as well.
According to the University of Sydney's, Gun Policy.org, which compiles data on international firearms, there were 270,000,000 million guns owned by those in the U.S., with approximately 88.8 guns per 100 people, in 2007. The networking opportunities available on the shooting.org forum will bring together a balance of information and viewpoints on this recently trending topic.
