Back in the spotlight in today's Senate hearing, gun control is a contentious issue that dates back to America's Founding Fathers.
The U.S. Supreme Court entered the gun control debate in 2008, ruling that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia. It was possibly the most important government statement regarding guns in the U.S. since the Second Amendment was ratified in 1791.
