The first round will be to establish some rules and someone to accept the debate.
I will be standing as neg.

Rules:
-Keep this formal. No insulting, no bias. Facts. This will make the argument much easier to do.
-You don't have to cite sources, but please make sure you know what you're talking about.
-No trolls.

Looking forward to a good debate.

(Don't get offended, it's my catchphrase)
May the best douche bag win.

Well to all voters please note my opponent forfeited the first round.

1. People kill people, with guns
The common argument for those in support of gun ownership is that people kill people, not guns. The flaw in that argument is quite obvious, people kill people using guns. If guns weren't allowed, murderers and such would have a harder time killing people. Now affirmation might argue that you can get guns illegally, well then we better step up our attacks on the black market.

2. Guns aren't needed to protect your individual freedom
All police, military men and women an so forth, swear an oath to the constitution, not to the government or any individual. Therefore any argument that the government would use to military to make police state is false as the military would never listen to the government on such an order when they serve the people and the country as a whole.

3. Illegal gun trafficking could be stopped
By banning guns from coming into the US altogether, we could have an easier time at focusing on stopping guns from entering and therefore ending the illegal gun trade.
