AR-15's should be banned for many reasons. One being to many younger people are becoming more and more able to get their hands on dangerous weapons such as rifles like the AR-15. Another reason being that many mentally unstable people get their hands on these types of weapons and begin endangering themselves and people around them. Also more and more gang related violence occurs with these types of weapons which can endanger a whole community and not just themselves. AR-15's also show, peoples kids, our younger generation that guns like these are OK to have around and are a normal thing. However they are made for a more sinister purpose and aren't necessary in an ideal society with no firearms. AR-15's are also unnecessary for the sole purpose you cant even hunt with them they are more for military purposes. They are specifically made for killing people not animals or any other remotely justified gun sport. AR-15's are just a danger to society and a danger to our younger generation of kids. Its showing our kids how to resolve issues with guns and violence rather than peace and tranquility.

" One being to many younger people are becoming more and more able to get their hands on dangerous weapons such as rifles like the AR-15." - Will a lot of teens can get hands on small fire arms such as Glock's for much cheaper and easier. So why not ban all guns if you have that point of view

" Another reason being that many mentally unstable people get their hands on these types of weapons and begin endangering themselves and people around them. " But, Again, Unstable people can get Small Fires much much easier than any other weapon on the market, And should be better laws to stop the unstable from even trying to get one.

"Also more and more gang related violence occurs with these types of weapons which can endanger a whole community and not just themselves." - Where is the source.

" AR-15's also show, peoples kids, our younger generation that guns like these are OK to have around and are a normal thing." - Because they are, Unless they are trying to use them to kill random people. Also, Many schools that say guns are bad never us AR-15's but Small fire arms, Because they are easier to hide.

" They are specifically made for killing people not animals or any other remotely justified gun sport. " - Yet they are one of the must used hunting rifle's in the US.

" AR-15's are just a danger to society and a danger to our younger generation of kids. " - But the point of guns, Is not to have to protect our self's from other people. It's to fight against our government if it try's to destory's our freedom.

" Its showing our kids how to resolve issues with guns and violence rather than peace and tranquility. " - Kids use guns because they do not care about the law. Telling society to break, Is wrong. How can you have a good society with out good people.

I will accept as long as you don't use, "The Second Amendment says so," because we obviously will not be able to convince the other of its' meaning.

I'm curious to see what the liberal gun control lobby will have to produce, argument-wise
