There are lots of people right now that think that the American Gun Laws shouldn't be there. I strongly believe that the gun laws are completely fair. You see, the original purpose of the gun laws was for the times where tyrannical government situations where possible. People do however have a fair point on that it causes many violent crimes but then again, the people that do murder are punished severely. If we think about it, Australia still has crime even after they took the guns back. America is massive and I say that they are managing quite well even if people have guns.

I accept gladly this debate. In this round I will only accept it and give a few arguments. I will build my case in the next rounds.

I will just like to add that Australia as of 2007 has 5.2% adults (765000 people) [1] bearing weapons, whereas American in the same year (2007) had an estimated 270 million gun bearers ( 87%). [2]

Now regarding the protection or feeling of safety while having a fire weapon has been proven faulty. Cases have shown that individuals have acted without consent of their rationality (they were just acting on primary instincts) where fire weapons were used not because the situation was dangerous but due to them knowing that they have a weapon [3]

Most people are not upset about the laws now, its the laws that are going to be made if the gun laws keep going in this direction.

I would do it if it was a 3 round debate. People often don't have the time for any more.
