With all the heated debate about banning guns in America amidst all the recent shootings, it would be foolish to ban and or confiscate all semi automatic rifles as recent Democrats have suggested. Every major study in recent history has proven that there is no correlation between the number of gun owners relating to the number of homicides. In fact the areas of the country that have the strictest gun control have the highest number of homicides whereas the places that have relaxed gun control see the fewest homicides.

Could you clear up your statement. It was rather difficult to discern exactly what your point was.

Since Obama started his annoying harangues gun sales have boomed. And why? Because of his contempt for the reasons people have. I worked with a very nice gentle PhD, a woman from China, she had two guns because she has a daughter and her husband travels. She has no confidence in the authorities to protect her. Can you blame her? But Obama does.
She might be wrong (i Don't think so) but she is doing this for her daughter. Do you see that?

I think I have already made it"clear why I wouldn't take this debate. It seems unlikely either side could provide a convincing arguement.

If that is not what the studies you have seen have shown, take the debate

That is not what study's have shown. Data shows that the correlation is that gun ownership increase crime. The problem, as I see it, is the data only shows correlation not causation. Meaning I would be hard pressed to demonstrate that guns are a "cause." Therefore justifying bans become difficult.
