more homicides correlated to more guns owed. here is a quote indicating that's what a literature review confirms, followed by a site with literature review conclusions. aside from a shoddy study or two or so, you can't find generalize consensus that find different conclusions. Hemenway and coauthor Lisa M. Hepburn reviewed research from peer-reviewed journals and found that the evidence from studies of U.S. cities, states and regions "is quite consistent " where there are higher levels of gun...

Gun Control - Less Regulation

I believe that Gun Control is an infringement on your rights as an American citizen. I believe that the liberal argument that, "since they are newer the rules don't apply" is false. I believe that most of the Anti-Gun Control people are uneducated and try to use as little facts as possible. I believe that Concealed Carriers do stop crimes and although that may not be stated outright as a right of the people, it is a good law and it should not be taken. Finally, I believe that there IS is such a...

Gun control

I am in favor of gun control. Currently buying weapons is very easy. Too easy. People on terrorist watchlist can obtain fire arms easier that a family can adopt a child. A ban of any type of dangerous assault weapon for any one and a strict background check policy for purchasing any type of firearm would drastically lower the amount of violent crimes in the USA. If you take a look at Italy, a heavily populated country like a small scale USA, has had gun control fire years and there's crime rates...

Gun Control

Gun control is a completely unnecessary and near-idiotic idea promoted by the current left wing politicians, both in office domestically, and abroad. In the wake of the shooting of a gay bar in Orlando, it is necessary for members of LGBTQ to take action, and to take the responsibility of defending themselves into their own hands. Already, groups have been formed nationwide dedicated to this idea. Not only should members of the LGBTQ community defend themselves, but the general American public s...

Gun Control Is Necessary In Light Of Orlando Shooting

spencercrat123
SJM

For my first debate, I would like to challenge a conservative with a strong commitment to the 2nd amendment. Opening Arguments in first round. In the wake of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting (in which the gunman legally obtained weapons that granted him the means to murder 49 Americans and injure 51 more) and other mass shootings in recent years that seem only to intensify in frequency and damage, I will argue that gun control, at least its consideration in Congress, is a necessity. Wh...
