The comments mention a change in sources around 2000, but it's an interesting trend.

Now, that's interesting. The huge jump in mentions of "gun control" '93-'94 I understand perfectly, and I guess the 2000 spike was related to the 2000 Presidential election. (I was young and not interested in politics at the time, so I don't remember.)
