I think that guns should not be outlawed, but outlawed for certain people. People who don't have an criminal records shouldn't be allowed to have a gun AT ALL, but civilians who don't have anything on their record should be able to. People who don't have any criminal records may need to protect themselves; possibly if another posses a weapon, they might need to defend themselves and their family from the attacker, and without a gun they could have possibly been hurt, sent to the hospital, or in the worst case, killed.
But how would one determine who can get a gun? Would the system be perfect? Probably not. The easiest way to solve the problem is just to outlaw gun ownership for all civilians, with, of course, the exception of hunting weapons. And if one person is being attacked or threatened with some kind of hunting rifle, then they can call the police, who should be armed and able to deal with the situation.
If you look at SweetCandies' profile, you can see that he or she posted the argument on the day he or she joined. Therefore, SweetCandies is obviously not going to continue the debate. That is really rude. When you start a debate, complete it!
