I think that there should be very strict gun control. I think this because without strict gun control crazy and evil people can injure or murder many people. Take the Newton school shootings for example, a crazy guy took his mother's guns, killed her, drove to a school, shot 20 kids and six adults and then killed himself. If there was very strict gun control that would not have happened.

That is not true. People will realize that if the government has banned some kind of weapon they should not get other weapons.
RationalMadman

Con

no they won't. they wil use the best weapon at hand, if not a gun, then most likely a knife.

The worst kind of weapon a regular citizen could get is a gun, therefore we need to do a lot to eliminate the chances of regular citizens getting a gun.
RationalMadman

Con

it hurts more to die by knife than gun, gun is relatively painless if shot at vital organ.

Listen we need to have stricter gun control period. It will be harder to ban knives because you can buy them in everyday stores but guns are worse because you don't have to get close to somebody to hurt or kill them.
RationalMadman

Con

Save pain, save effort, if everyone has a gun most people are sane enough to realise the stupidity of trying to use it. It's like you want an equal handicap which just opens a pandora's box of olden days fighting styles and crimes. I, on the otherhand want an equal ADVANTAGE that makes everyone fear using it on others (apart form insane fellows like the connecticut dude).

Wow, that was emotion without facts, the facts were not discussed. The crime rate today is lower than the time period of 1994-2004 when the assault weapon ban was in effect. Thats right, less gun crime post ban. In the vein of honesty, there have been more mass shootings,but a lot of that can be blamed on Media coverage. The mentally ill will get access to some type of weapon.

Reasons for voting decision: Spelling and grammar equally bad. I believe Pro had a more convincing case, even though one sentence really made up his only reason for being pro. "The worst kind of weapon a regular citizen could get is a gun, therefore we need to do a lot to eliminate the chances of regular citizens getting a gun.". Con had good argument but the logic behind it is kinda flawed. Don't really know what to say about this debate other than that.
