Gun control

Gun's are easily available to children because of irresponsible adults. Multiple times, these children have killed someone, sometimes adults, sometimes fellow children. The first thing an escaped convict is going to get is a gun, even if he has to kill for it, and he's NOT going to use it for deer hunting. People who politically support gun freedom are usually not trustworthy; they have gun or ammo shops or manufacturers, own shooting ranges, etc., or they own guns and would like to keep them no...

Gun Control

The second amendment was created for a reason. To protect the American people; specifically against rouge governments. Obama wants to inflict fire arms confiscation to lower the crime rate in the country. He is acting as though criminals follow laws. If the people of America want guns, the people of America will get guns; even on the black market if needs be. I live in a hunting, redneck, I-like-big-explosion-and-fire type of community and if the government comes to our doorstep for the purpose...

Gun Control

Hello all. This debate is part of the current Debate Tournament. I will be contending that gun regulation should be minimal and only in the forms of background checks to purchase a gun. If my opponent wishes for a different resolution, I hope he comments on it before accepting it. Contention 1: Guns protect people If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns, which actually increased crime rates. States with right-to-carry...

Libertarians are right on crime-- No gun control laws an no victimless crimes

Gun control laws do not work because criminals will prey on citizens because criminals will be armed while citizens are defenseless. In Florida, the murder rate dropped 20% after gun control was abolished. Criminals fear armed suspects. My dad is a cop he knows that the main reason people think twice about robberies is because the may be armed. Our Constitution says, "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed." Gun control laws are unconstitutional. Our police spend a lot of their time...

The gun control licenses only abide to your good average citizen while thieves do not really care about these laws, causing a nuisence for lawful citizens and anopen field for criminals to do their work. in switzerland all men are required to be part of the militia and most keep fully automatis guns in there houses , yet there is virtually no gun violence there. citizens with guns deter crime not promote it....

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...

more gun control should occur

looking for a debate on the topic, especially with those who say no more control, at all. here are my initial thoughts/rants.... why isn't meaningful legislation already passed? most people on news shows seems to offer the same ideas, no guns for mentally ill and criminals, background checks on all guns, and assault rifle, automatics type bans. hardly no one says we should just ban all guns, it's a red hearing from gun advocates to get on their grandstand. -background checks. 74% of NRA me...
