Debate Rounds (3)
Should guns be allowed in America at all? More and more people seem to die each day due to guns. Today, a 6 year old got shot in the head because a 4 year old had a gun. If the parents were careful and didn't have the gun, the 6 year old would have been enjoying the day as most of us. I believe only law enforcement officers and security gourds should be armed because they will be professionally trained to handle a weapon. You never know who might get a gun legally and misplace it or even lend it to a madman. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Why should we have to live in these conditions? Our kids are growing up with all these violent crimes around them. Getting rid of guns will be a option to reduce these violent activities from occurring. Imagine your loved one being held at gun-point or even being shot. What would you do? How much would it hurt? Would you ask yourself if you could have done something before? Guns are used in all types of crimes. So please vote on this. I just want to know what peoples opinions are. Vote yes if you agree guns should be banned throughout the U.S. Vote no if you agree guns should be allowed throughout hate U.S.

First about guns aloud in America, Yes i do believe we should be allowed to own guns, They are used for sport, self-defense and entertainment as well as creating jobs with a variety of Factories to produce parts for such weapons as well as Gun Stores and People who repair and clean firearms. Next, about the children, if a 6 year old got his hands on a gun and shot a 4 year old that is a irresponsible father who obviously doesn't know how to safely store his firearms or raise a child, if that were to ever happen that child should be taken away from that bad father. Second if only Law Enforcement Officers and Guards Had firearms they had better have them posted all over the streets and constantly paroling because last time i checked the average police response time is 10 minutes especially in my small town where the our Police Station is small, in 10 minutes the person could have murdered someone, robbed someone blind and made a sandwich with plenty of time to get away, if responding to a shooting police had better just bring body bags because 10 minutes is 10 minutes too late. Also what do you imply by "Living in these conditions" if your implying all this crime is caused by guns you are dreadfully wrong, our government refuses to crack down on the real issues and instead blames the guns instead of gangs and illegal guns trade, what about Obama "Fast And Furious" scandal where he was supposed to keep track of guns that were bring traded illegally and just lost track of them. The government is at huge fault for all the gun violence and crimes going on. If my loved one where ever held at gun point and got shot, id suggest buying them a gun to protect themselves next time because i highly doubt the criminal that was doing the shooting was worried about his gun license a making sure his gun was legal. Just to state, i beieve there should be SOME gun control, not like strictly regulated handguns that are hard to obtain, i mean people shouldnt be able to buy light machine guns or explosives like grenade launchers or RPG's that i do not agree with, nobody has such reason for those weapons and that is justified. Also if you want to get into the high capacity magazine lockdown we can get into that next arguement since that i also have a few opinions on. That sums it up for now I beileve guns should be allowed in America. I await your response.
I agree with most of it. :)
