The video attached shows what guns have caused innocent people. Watch this video and see if you are still against gun control.
Pray for Newtown.
Also, if we let the government take away our right to keep and bear arms, just imagine what else they might try to take away from us!!! Thank you.

I am just going to rebut the ignorance you just spewed to the Internet:
As this is my final argument, I would like to conclude by saying that my opponent offered no factual information just opinions. I have made legitimate contradictions to his baseless statements and therefore should be claimed as winner of this debate. Gun control is a way to raise gun safety not lower it and should be supported as a way to have the law on our side if ever we needed it to be.
Okay, first that was an unfair statement. i did not say that i didn't care that millions of people are dieing every year ( and there is no way you can know what i am thinking so that is completely unfair to state that i don't seem to care about people dieing), i am simply saying that millions of people die every year anyway! dieing is natural, and no one knows how long they have on this earth.
okay, first just because you have only heard of one bombing does not meant that that was the only one, and also, i said that bombing was one example of people being killed. there was also 9/11. there has been many other incidents.
When i say "Obama voter" it means they are most likely not thinking about what they are doing, they don't care what happens to this country. (not in all cases just most) because, we all saw how much Obama put us in debt compared to Bush. so i understand someone voting for him the first time, but after they saw what he did to our country his first term, they should have been more wise in their voting decisions,and why they voted for him. also when i say "Obama voter" it means they are willing to let the government take complete control of our country, and they don't care if all our guns are taken away from us, because they don't realize how much it might hurt our country.
Your statement about not being allowed to bring a gun into Walmart is false. if you go to this website, it states clearly that you ARE allowed to carry a handgun with you in to all Walmart stores. ( You are allowed to bring a handgun anywhere you please, according to to the Second Amendment. except of course to places such as the airport
and the state capital building etc...)
Taking away your right to own guns is like taking away your right to have children, or a house, etc...
Your statement about it being a "different time" and not having been attacked sense 1865 is completely ignorant. it is a different time, but George Washington was a very wise leader, and he knew exactly what he was talking about. it does not matter what year it is the fact is, "A free people ought to be armed!" if you are free you should have weapons to protect yourself! if you don't, someone could attack you, and you wouldn't be able to defend yourself. also, how would you know if i was a soldier fighting in Afghanistan or not? My brother was over in Afghanistan during Christmas this past year, so how would you know these things? you don't... so you are just saying what you think you know.
The police are here to "HELP" protect us, and make sure that every one is following the law. they are not our personal body guards who we can let take care of our lives for us. Just because there are police does not mean that you cant
do your part as an American and help our country, even in small ways.
No it would not. you said "A security system or a community watch system will be much more effective than a gun and will attract a lot less law suits." No. a security system could break down, and a community watch system is too much of a hassle, someone could forget it is there turn, and something bad could happen. Having a gun would be WAY more effective.
As this is my final argument, i would like to say that my opponent is not thinking about how much more effective a gun is, and how as an American citizen we have every right to own a gun. My opponent is voting on taking away our right according to the Second amendment. so to end this debate i would like to say to keep the second amendment, vote against gun control, to help protect ourselves, and our country.
