What are some good websites to find information on opposing gun control?

I have to write a persuasive speech for English class and I'm opposing gun control.  I'm using the right to bear arms, stricter laws will not prevent criminals from obtaining weapons, and murder rates decreased in states that allowed concealed and carry laws.  Any help would be appreciated.

As you probably know, Second Amendment rights (the right to bear arms) is a major political issue in the United States today.  Like any major issue, this one has interest groups that lobby for both sides of the issue.  The websites of pro-gun groups are good places to go to look for arguments against gun control.

The most famous of the pro-gun groups is the National Rifle Association, or the NRA.  The NRA is one of the strongest lobbying organizations in American politics today.  Its website is

Another important group is the Second Amendment Foundation.  Their website is at http://saf.org

Good luck!

I agree that the NRA is a good source.  I would also suggest the National Association for Gun Rights web site.  It is full of resources.

http://www.nationalgunrights.org/

The Gun Cite web site is an index of other web sites, so you will probably find this very useful.

http://guncite.com/

You should also try Jurist.  This web site will also have excellent legal resources.
