Frontline: Hot Guns

Logo for Frontline:  Hot Guns
This site looks at the issue of gun control and gun rights. There are a variety of links to articles which argue the pros and controls of each. There are links to statistics about guns as well as FAQs. There are transcripts of interviews with a number of people on each side. There is also a discussion of the issue that followed the program. The materials on this site would provide excellent ammunition (no pun intended) for a debate on gun control.

I have not used this in a classroom, but certainly would. This site provides some good background and a nice overview to the gun debate. It would provide a good background for dicussion in a classroom.
