Should a sitting president hold campaign rallies after the election?

Since the 2016 election, President Trump has held 24 rallies across the country.

Should the U.S. implement stricter gun control laws?

Gun control advocates say it's way too easy to get a gun in the United States. Time and time again, people who should not have access to firearms are able to legally obtain a gun, and then use it to kill others. But critics believe gun control makes people less safe. Constructing barriers to obtain and carry guns will only stop law-abiding citizens, not criminals. Making it easier to get permits...
