Pro

From 1982 to 2012 there has been 62 mass shootings within our nation. Morris says in a article I've found online that "Half of all mass shooters used assault weapons or high-capacity magazines"meaning that a few sensible restrictions could have saved a heck-load of lives"(Morris). This is a huge factor when thinking of geting rid of gun rights because this will elminate the amount of guns making the nation a safer place all around.

In an article suporting gun control Morris M says "But there"s no conceivable reason to own an AR-15, a pump action shotgun, armor-piercing bullets or a high-capacity magazine. Firing a semi-auto at a piece of cardboard is no more "sport" than using a bazooka to play pool is "leisure.""(Morris). This follows up with my last argument meaning no one needs a gun that has a high-capacity magazine, there is just no need. A gun with a high-capacity magazine in my opinion will bring nothing but trouble.
