This chapter offers suggestions on how to advance the gun debate in the U.S. It discusses how the gun control movement has latched onto the public health field to make its case for stronger gun controls. It analyzes what both gun control supporters and gun enthusiasts assume when they enter into the gun debate. It calls for the continuation of the gun debate because moving the debate forward can potentially produce better violence-reducing public policy.
