Brownstein, Ronald. Why Democrats are no longer afraid of Gun Control Anymore. CNN, 26

Feb. 2019 https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/26/politics/democrats-gun-control-bill-party-

policy/index.html Accessed 28 Feb. 2019.

1. This article was written by Ronald Brownstein, and as a CNN reporter he wrote this
article to show why Democrats are no longer afraid of gun control anymore. The article is
going on to say that the house was at first scared to lose southern democratic seats in
congress but as time moves on they are becoming stronger and fighting for themselves
rather than worrying about others.
2. The purpose of this article is to show the democratic half of congress is starting to
progress and they are become more self centered and on their own views rather than
focusing on the people around them. The audience for this piece is anyone that is a
follower of a democratic party. I say this because this is helping democrats win elections
and more gun control laws to be passed.
3. The author is Ronald Brownstein, and this source is credible because it is CNN news.
CNN news is credible because they are a popular news outlet so if they were putting out
news that was not even true they would not be where they are today. I can refer to the
CRAAP method because all the answers to the questions are given to me in the article.
4. This will help me answer my questions because it shows me how it will affect people
around me. I might be against these views but looking at the democratic views helps me
understand what they are trying to impose and what they are trying to change and how it
will affect it.

the future. This article was written towards either political party, I feel as if this article was
very unbiased. The context of this article was just to state what is going on and how
congress and America is changing.

owners. I say this because the author uses specific quotes from Republicans who are
against gun control.
