Should AR-15s be legal?

AR-15s are semiautomatic civilian grade weapons. There is nothing that makes them much worse or more dangerous than handguns or shotguns. However, after the events of the Parkland school shooting, there has been a push to outlaw these weapons. The problem with this is that making AR-15s illegal won't solve any problems, and it will limit the choices of a law-abiding citizen for what gun he wants to protect himself with. The Virginia Tech shooting showed us that you can kill large amounts of peop...

Gun Control

Gun control does not need to happen in America. Bad people will find a way to do bad things which is true for a lot of terrorist attacks. The daily wire writes "In 1976, D.C. implemented a law that banned citizens from owning guns, as only police officers were allowed to carry firearms.

JacksonM123

The death penalty should be allowed because those who kill innocent people should pay for it with their own lives. The death penalty should be allowed as an acceptable punishment for those who kill innocent people. Taxpayers should not have to pay for a killer to spend the rest of their lives not working, watching cable tv, and working out. The killer took an innocent life and should not be given any of the privileges and luxuries that they took away from the victim....

DebaterTheWise

To say that the Authorization for Use of Military Force gives too much power to the President is absolutely illogical, simply due to the fact, that the reasoning for the president in this case is to use military force against anyone he seems deems was involved in the 9/11 attacks. This includes nations that harbored or enabled the terror plot to occur....
