Should guns be legal
Debate Rounds (5)
My stance is that guns should be legal.
Also cities with guns are safer so why try to take them away?
2. most countries where guns are allowed have more crimes than those who don't. Brazil, Africa, and America are the perfect example of this. how come? because the criminals know that the citizens have guns, thus they have to have more guns. guns possession does not ensure safety. the criminals use more advanced type of guns which are more dangerous while the government only allow his citizen to posses a standard gun.
Russia has 4 times the crime as the USA and has very strict gun control.
Norway, Finland, Germany, and France have low murder rates. Luxembourg has a total handgun ban has a murder rate 9 times higher than Germany.
Criminals always get their hands on guns,the only thing banning guns does is stop law abiding citizens from getting them. The criminals still use guns so what does this solve?
You said that rules were meant to maintain order and could be change.
The constitution was made to protect human rights.
Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither.
secondly, having more guns will not solve any problem either, and if anything, will only create more chaos and disorder. there is no guarantee that these so called 'law-abiding citizens' will stay sane while they know that they live in a country where everyone has a gun concealed behind their back and the criminals run amok with more murderous type of guns which overpower the citizens'. even though there is a regulation to make sure that only sane person can have a gun, it will only nullify the first objective; that everyone, without exception, should be armed with guns to be able to protect themselves. now it is clear that allowing ALL citizens to have guns is wrong, and restricting the rules will only result in some people do not have a gun and cannot protect themselves.
This statement was not based on facts.
In almost every case a citizen only uses weapons when the police were not there.
Secondly,you are just giving your opinion. There is no evidence to back you.
Guns have saved innocent lives countless times.
'Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence...from the hour the pilgrims landed to present day,events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable...the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil. - George Washington
2. i understand that a need for a weapon is indispensable, but i see that you failed to tell me why it should be gun? because the criminals have guns? how exactly do you fight with a gun? in most cases, the attacker is the one who is more ready to shoot, because crime always take place in ambush scenario. when the gun is pointed at you, while your gun is somewhere in your cabinet, securely locked so your children cant reach it, or somewhere in your underwear to conceal it, and the moment you want to take it out, the criminal has already planted the bullet inside your brain. BOOM!! no self defense. SURPRISE!!!
thirdly, the best option is surely to enforce the law and security, heavier punishment for crimes which involve gun will work too.
