We Should Have Stricter Gun Control

AwesomePossum
TheSkeptic

This debate will cover whether or not we should have stricter gun control. For the first round, we will set up the perimeters and definitions. We should not have arguments/points/etc. in the first round, only introductions. From the second round onwards, we shall flesh out our arguments. Gun control would be considered as how easy it is to attain guns (meaning eligibility and sales), how strict the regulation on concealed weapons is, and how much power our government should have in terms of r...

Gun control is an effective way to reduce the impact of violent crime

whiteflame
NarutoUzamaki

This is a relatively common topic, I realize, but I'll try to provide a spin to it. I am a supporter of some methods of gun control, and I feel they're worth defending. As such, I will take the Pro side of this debate, and argue, as the resolution states, that gun control is an effective way to reduce the impact of violent crime. Rather than define the terms, as that would make this a broad debate about all forms of gun control and thus allow me to invite and then avoid a great deal of argume...

It is more sane and wise to support *some* gun control.

Burden of proof shared. DEFINITIONS: "Gun" actually is a stand in for "arms" in the 2nd Amendment. "Gun control," therefore means some limitation to the arms that may be owned by private citizens....

Gun Laws / Control in the United States

Samyul
TheHunter

Welcome. I do not think there should be restrictions on Guns. Now, let me make a clear point here. I'm talking about guns, not deadly weapons ex. Nuclear Bombs or Missiles. I believe that the gun control in the US is unnecessary and nonproductive. I am glad to find someone to debate me over this topic in which I feel very strongly about, and welcome you and you're beliefs honorably. So, here we go. Gun control and laws are wrong....

Gun control

You might be asking, am I going to start a gun control debate every time there is a horrible massacre? Maybe so. Because every time I see reports of mass murders and massacres, we all pretend to feel bad about it and we all pretend that we think mass murders are horrible things, but then we go on with our lives and don't do anything at all to prevent more mass murders. Is that not the definition of insanity? Today, in Alabama, a faculty member opened fire and killed at least 3 people because...

Recent and past shootings are not a gun control problem but a problem of society and the individuals

Canadian-In-Florida
Ike-Jin-Park

In light of the recent shootings in Oregon and Connecticut, the media and anti-second amendment proponents have tended to spin these tragedies in a manor that reflects the issue of gun control in the United States. This debate is to determine if gun control is the main problem and should be highlighted or if the powers that be are ignoring other more important issues to propel their anit-gun campaigns. I will be taking the side stating there are much bigger issues involved in this and that g...

Gun Control is wrong and the government shouldn't infringe on the Second Amendment

TheConserative
Bullish

The government should not infringe on the Second Amendment Obama is far from the solution on Gun Control. Why should people tell me what to use to protect my family. if it's an AR-15 or a double barreled shotgun that I use, it should be fine. The NRA is closer to the solution than the Liberals are on Capitol Hill are. The 2nd Amendment says a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. A person wi...

The US Should Have Better Gun Control

Samos

I believe that the lack of gun control in the Unites States is a serious danger to the public, in nations with full gun control the homicide rate, armed robbery rate, and suicide rates are much lower. First Round is for acceptance Second Round is for initial arguments & rebuttals Third Round is for further arguments & rebuttals Fourth Round is final rebuttals & concluding statements only, no new arguments...

Gun Control

TheDebatePro
induced

My first debate ever. Ok, so I think that the government, or some officials should stop trying to debate over guns being taken away from citizens. Why? First of all, there are many other methods for killing someone. Like knifing someone. Maybe we should just ban knives! The point is, guns don't kill people, people kill people. Guns are big help for self defense. The tragedies of Columbine, and other school shoo. tings are the ones where kids under 18 hold the guns. Adults shouldn't be so stupid...
