Good start. You will also want to address the Second Amendment and the concerns people have about losing this right, as this is your main opposition and ultimately your audience. I would suggest you visit several Pro and Anti gun control websites to get an idea of what each side is using to argue.
I am excited to read your paper, I am going to be writing my paper on the same topic. I am going into it with the opinion that gun control laws do not affect crime rate but it will be interesting to see if I change my mind. My suggestion would be to find specific instances where gun control laws have been enforced and try to identify the effects.
