Gun control

On November 5, 2009, Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood Soldier Readiness center, killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. He used an FN Five-seveN semi-automatic pistol, which, according to wikipedia, is used by SWAT teams because of their effectiveness against body armor. Why would any civilian need that? Now, Mr. Hasan did happen to be in the military, but he did not receive his gun from the military. He bought it legally at a civilian gun store. What that means is that any one of us...

gun control

Gun control: By definition, gun control does not work because of this reason. The thug down the street who robbed a bank more than likely, did not get his gun legally. He probably does not have a gun liscence, and most likely got his gun from the street corner or black market. Let me give an example: A man goes crazy, and decides to go on a shooting rampage, as the media would describe. He doesn't have his gun liscence, never has owned a gun, but because of his situation like so many others, h...

Gun Control is an ineffective comfort tactic used by the government to fool the American people

Gun Control does absolutely nothing but provide a temporary positive feeling towards the American people, it hasn't worked even in our most violent cities and gun owners are labeled as enemies due to it...

I think we should have more Gun Control laws.There are too many deaths in this country because of guns. In this year there were 7,910,100 crimes comitted, about 700000 were comitted with guns. There have been too many suicides because of guns. Also school shootings people! Innocent kids died because teenagers easily obtained guns! And this is why we should get rid of guns. We need too have compassion, we should have gun control laws that prohibit civilians to own guns, but the police and armed f...

Gun control laws do not make America safer for law biding citizens!

I first want to say that I hope you accept this debate, it should be interesting. My intentions for this debate are simple: I want to discredit all the myths that gun control makes law biding citizens safer. Gun control is not only unconstitutional, but dangerous for Americans. The 2nd Amendment was put in place not to protect the Nation, but to protect the people within the nation. I will go on in the later rounds to clarify, but I want to keep my opening statement brief. Thank you, and go...

First round pro states case. Second round con refutes, presents case. Pro defends case and refutes. Third round rebuttals and defense. Final round rebuttals, defense, closing. Pro (as he started first) can only conclude (no rebuttals or defense for pro). Gun control - efforts to regulate, ban, or control gun sales and possession. Good luck...

Loosen gun control

Gun control, probably one of the most heated controversies in politics today,and I think a fun topic to debate on. The constitution on the United States of America allows citizens the right to bare arms. And yes today citizens are allowed to bare arms, however not extensively. I am sick of hearing about these women being ripped to pieces by homicidal men, gun control should be allowed on a more loose system. If you cannot carry a gun in areas where you are more likley going to use it what's t...

Anti-Gun Control peoples' arguments have little or no basis.

What on earth are these anti-gun control people going on about? You may say that criminals won't follow gun laws, so we shouldn't have them, but that is akin to saying that there should be no laws against arson because arsonists won't follow them. No one can argue that gun violence is heinous, and we can prevent future crimes by making sure legally obtainable guns are kept under better control....
