I have to write a research paper for my Criminal Justice class on "any topic covered by the criminal justice system". Basically anything mentioned anywhere in our book. I'm looking for some good firearm-related topics to research and write on. Any ideas for topics? I'm not looking for any help writing, just picking what I want to start with. I have to get my topic approved by the professor. I need to be able to research and write 5 pages. I guess my idea so far is: Regulating firearm ownership does not directly effect firearm crime.
