Con

The gun ban will only bring more deaths upon America than no gun ban. It is also a constitutional right and that alone shows why we should't have gun ban. The statistics prove it and just because it works with other countries does not mean it will work. The killers will not turn in their guns, they are outlaws

Pro

Consider it this way; we'll never be able to stop criminals from obtaining guns. What we can do is make it harder for them, and make it so police can confiscate the guns no matter who has them or where.

And leave our citizens defenseless ? Great idea
ThatChristianGuy

Pro

You call this leaving our citizens defenseless. I call it removing potential for more criminals.

Lawful people, when given the opportunity to become lawless (aka guns) do so sometimes. Not all the time, but it most certainly happens.

What you meant to say was give our citizens guns to defend themselves, right? And lawless people will never turn in their guns. Why should they? Their outlaws who care little for law, if they care at all

Exactly. Let's give citizens guns so they can start more riots.

I agree with con... we cant just leave citizens defenseless.... It will end up with more non-stoppable riots.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro did not refute most of Con's arguments, but Con also made many claims without proving them. For example "The statistics prove" and "The gun ban will only bring more deaths upon America than no gun ban". However, Pro took Con's side when he stated that guns shouldn't be banned, just harder to obtain.
