If you take away our guns you are taking away our liberty on law at a time, what next taking a way the freedom of speech?

Columbine High School. Heritage High School. Sandy Hook Elementary School. These are but a few of many school shootings that have occurred in the last 2 decades. How many more shootings do we have to endure before we finally decide to tighten gun control laws? Why should we let innocent men, women, and children die because we don't want to give up our killing machines? I choose to affirm for a few reasons.
First, why do citizens need weapons of war? The guns used in the Columbine school shooting were semiautomatic pistols and shotguns with shortened barrels. These weapons have no place in non-war situations. There is no place for military weapons in civilian situations. If you ask a hunter what he hunts with, he will likely reply in one of two ways. He will say that he uses a bolt-action rifle or a pump-action, full barrel shotgun. They do not need military weapons to kill wildlife. These are the firearms that will be regulated under stricter gun control laws.

I agree many people have died because of guns, but many people have also died by drowning in swimming pools, or lakes, stabbed repeativiely with kitchen knives, gassed out by chemical gas, and many other devices.

We can't just ban every thing that has ever killed someone then we wouldn't even have tooth brushes! If they make gun control laws srticter how could we protect ourselves if a armed robber comes to our home with a gun? If we just have kitchen knives then we will surely die... unless we have some sort of super power that lets us leap about 20 yards to actually reach the shooter before we are shot. What can the police do? Recently I have found that it is very rare for police to prevent crimes. All they can do is "stop more from happening". Even though people are still dieing and crime rates are constantly rising. In the past gun control laws have been issued but as the law-abiding citizens handed over their weapons, criminals were collecting them through the black market. We can't stop other countries from selling weapons to our criminals. If they are crazy enough to use a gun in a robbery, murder or even mass shootigs, they will find other means of hurting us weather just differnt weapons (knives, poison. ext.), or just different suppliers. The will always find means of killing or robbing us...ALWAYS!
