To OP: In order to give your argument some historical grounding so that it is not merely a "current events" paper that fails to show patterns over decades, be sure to cite these:

Armed: New Perspectives on Gun Control by Gary Kleck and Don B. Kates (Nov 2001)

The Great American Gun Debate by Don B. Kates, Gary Kleck, James R. Boen and John K. Lattimer (1997)

Firearms and Violence: Issues of Public Policy (Pacific Studies in Public Policy) by Don B. Kates (Jun 1983)

Restricting Handguns: The Liberal Skeptics Speak Out by Don B. Kates (Feb 1979)

and possibly even this, to show that harsh, nationwide prohibitions in a "gun free paradise" have not made it a paradise at all but the opposite: Guns and Violence: The English Experience by Joyce Lee Malcolm
"The Religion of Peace": Islam: What the West Needs to Know.
". . . all [historical] experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
[of governmental abuses and usurpations] to which they are accustomed."
Decl. of Indep., July 4, 1776
