Gun control in the United States
Debate Rounds (4)
1. No swearing or calling names
2. Arguments and rebuttals are allowed at all times, but no new arguments should be put forth in the last round.
Con has not stated the definition of "gun control" in this debate. Please state it in the next round.
Guns are dangerous weapons and only have one purpose-kill.
When guns are easily bought, people can easily get them and use them.
Mark, a boy, gets frustrated with his mother. He soon gets very angry, and remembers that there are guns in the house. He takes a gun and shoots his parents and his younger siblings.
Well, this case is true. Nehemiah Griego was Mark. He used the gun because he was angry and it was convenient.
Imagine a man in debt and also owning a gun.
He decides to rob a supermarket and points the gun at someone at the register. The person at the register attempts to push the alarm button, and out of panic, he shoots him.
My arguments are short due to the word limit
"knifes" spelling mistake
"Does that mean stones should be banned?"
No, have you ever heard of anyone being killed with stones nowadays?
"Round limits would not stop criminals from obtaining large magazines, just law-abiding citizens."
If there were no such magazines in the market, unless the criminal owned a gun factory, it would be impossible.
"There was a person(s) in..."
My opponent has not stated the source so I cannot check it.
"They help people develop accuracy and skill."
Archery can do that too.
I look forward to hearing my opponent's rebuttals. Sorry for the short points but i am restricted by the word limit.
Yes, they could, but it take time to reload, which buys time for the victim to defend.
"taking away guns would leave law abiding citizens defenseless"
Again, refer back to the previous round. If no guns were in the market, criminals wouldn't have guns unless they owned a factory.
(http://www.themoscowtimes.com...) This article proves that the point about being 'defenceless without a gun' is wrong.
