So many of these gun incidents could have been stopped quicker if someone else in the vacinity had a gun and could have put a stop to it. The people who commit these heartless crimes will get the guns anyways so why not let people who will respect them get them easier?
Abolishing all gun laws is not the solution. Things like mandatory background checks and waiting periods helps ensure that gus are registered. Registering weapons allows for tracking of things like illegal sales and theft of weapons. Also, if you eliminate control laws you allow for things like concealed weapons or flooding the streets with unessicary weapons like AK-47's and worse, which no civilian needs. If you also get rid of control laws, that means kids could have guns too.....You would be rolling back decades of steps in the right direction...not banning guns but limiting the types. And although deterrence theory may have worked with things like nuclear weapons in the past, it will not work with handguns or other small arms, you run the risk of increasing crime and violations against people who choose to not purchase weapons
I too forefitted the second round to see if there was going to be any posted response in my oponnent's final round....If there is anyone who reads this who wishes to have an actual debate on gun control, please challenge me!
