The context could be that immediately after the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, gun control was a high priority for President Obama.  Now, just six months later, there is no mention of it.  It is now not a hot topic, and the proponents want to get this topic back in the spotlight.

In order to find the context of this article, you must look at the settings or circumstances that are determining the significance of this event. The context of this article is that although the gun control movement seems to have gained public support since the horrific Newtown shooting, no actually progress has been made in legislature or debate.

Sandy Hook and Newtown are the immediate and specific context. Political Capitol and the debate surrounding gun control is an implied context. Gun violence in society is a general context.
