Gun Control Prevents Violence

StarHunter

Simple Rules: R1 is opening statements, R2 is for proof and rebuttals, and R3 is for closing arguments. Pro gets the first word, Con gets the last word. BEGIN! Violence is a lack of self-control that results in a desire to hurt or destroy. It is usually direct outward of the person experiencing the stress and frustration that is at the root of the violent behavior. But it can be self-directed also. It commonly results from a person's loss of rational thought when placed under stress. The over...

The US Should Have Better Gun Control

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...

I am tired of seeing other people argue this topic and want to do it myself. I am against gun control in general and will argue as such. 1st round accept, 2nd for opening statements, 3-4 are rebuttals and 5 is to close. Be CONCISE. I want a real discussion, not some sincerly ignorant troll or name calling knucklehead....

Gun control works

InnovativeEphemera
Wylted

My contention will be that gun control is demonstrably effective in reducing the incidence of homicide and that there are precedents for effective gun control which illustrate its effectiveness. These are ignored by gun proponents because it doesn't suit their purpose, and instead of looking at facts, they produce anecdotes and hypothetical scenarios where a gun would help them defend themselves. I will argue that these are hypothetical in nature and have a significant motivation behind the...

I believe that the 2nd ammendment to The United States Constitution needs to be revised. It is one thing to hunt for sport but to bear arms to 'protect yourself' is dodgy....

Gun Control

The belief that enforcing stricter gun laws on those who use guns for good(gun owners who protect themselves, their families, and potentially prevent crimes) will keep guns off the streets(from those who buy guns off the black market rather than a gun store " obviously requiring no permit, no background check, etc) is very foolish. If this method were actually effective, then illegal drugs would not be an issue. Vilifying gun owners by imposing gun restrictions make it tougher for registered, l...

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...
