my views on gun control will never change, it’s so silly that literally anyone in america can just walk in any buy a deadly weapon.

this idea will never not be stupid.

I was against guns before reading this book and my position only got reinforced.

Views on guns and gun laws are very personal and subjective. Often a person's opinion on these weapons were shaped by their experiences with guns. I think it would be very difficult for a work of fiction to change someone's mind in this instance. As it stands, my views remain unchanged.

The book did not change my view about guns. I still believe that guns are useful if they are used for the right purpose e.g. to curb crime. However, if they are mishandled they can be the worst nightmare for humanity.

My view on guns really stayed the same. I feel like the book just helped reaffirmed my personal beliefs toward the matter.

My views did not change, as I already agree that stricter gun control is a good thing, but if someone did not already agree with the author they may be completely turned off to the idea of stricter gun control by the lecture like feeling of some of the presentation of information in the book. A more story like telling may affect someone closer, but this story is packed with unnecessary politically charged rants by characters whose opinions are no more informed than the average American.
