There is little, if any uniformity state versus state. The major regulatory issues are child access and prevention laws, concealed weapon carry laws, regulation on private sales to minors, regulating all secondary used market sales, ownership or purchase of ‘assault” type weapons, one handgun a month law, ban on Saturday Night Specials and others of this type, preemption, and waiting periods of ownership.

• One of the ways to prevent panic from overwhelming you entails scanning the area and making mental plans as regards what can and cannot be done.
Overcoming the initial moments of anxiety and recovering from the daze and shock lead to thinking about other requisites of survival like clean water, flashlights and spare batteries, food, ability to fish in case of a beach, a weapon for self-defense and a source of fire. Depending on the duration, clothes might be required too along with tent or some other form of shelter. Knowledge of first-aid does come in handy and last but not the least, you must hold on optimism and hope.
So next time you come across a placard declaring that ‘The End is Near’, deep within you there is reassurance that no matter how traumatic it is, mental resilience, faith, hope and optimism are effective antidotes that can help overcome its after-effects and help to shape a new beginning.

The Greeks, (known by Romans as 'graecus') built the large wooden horse, The Trojan Horse, as a secret battle weapon against the Romans. The Greeks hid inside of it and presented it to the Romans as a gift, leaving it outside the Romans' land boundary. The Romans accepted it and brought it into their side of the land, and when nightfall came, the Greeks climbed out and attacked, therefore causing the battle of Troy.

. In Making Gun Control Happen the author, Patrick Radden Keefe, writes as an advocate to gun control. He indicates that one blatantly obvious change would be to “mandate a criminal background check for all gun purchases” as it would obviously stop criminals from getting their hands on a weapon (Keefe). It takes brains to live the life of a criminal; many of them most likely have weaseled their way out of the database and would therefore be able to buy a gun anyway. The idea of using a background check as the main means to sort out the good people from the bad people is a magnificent example of the many things wrong with gun control.
