Gun Control – (Claim – Strict gun control laws have no effect reducing gun violence.) (Counter Claim – Strict gun control laws do have a real effect reducing gun violence.) This is a midterm paper and my professor is a stickler for detail. I apologize for the difficulty. I will include the instructions he emailed the class. I am pro gun, so I would prefer pro gun but if not, I can deal with it. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime by email or you can text me at (304) 288 – 3909 Guidelines for argumentative essay: 1) Your midterm essay should be 5 full pages in length, a couple lines on page 6 is fine. 2) You need at least 8 sources in your text, matched up on the Works Cited page. 3) At least 1 source should be from a print source periodical(magazine, journal, newspaper). 4) At least one source should be from a print source book. 5) Be sure to state your claim in your introduction, and reinforce in the conclusion.
