Should there be a national firearm registry?
Debate Rounds (3)
Guns do not cause crime. People do. Make a national registry of murderers, not people who own a tool used for self-defense.
Respect the 2nd amendment. It was made so the PEOPLE could form a militia in times when the government could not protect the people.
The government has no need to know who has legally owned guns. Once they have a registry of everyone who owns a gun, THEY WILL CONFISCATE YOUR WEAPONS.
To my opponent I say: Please leave Debate.org. You do not want to debate, you only want to ruin other people's chance of enjoying this website.
This is now the second round my opponent has wasted. Hopefully he will finally give me something to refute next round.
Why do you willingly try to ruin the fun of this website? Anyone who looks on your profile can see you're just a troll who gets a kick out of frustrating people. This community of debaters obviously doesn't want you here, so please leave.
I ask the voters to consider how my opponent resorted to name calling when voting on conduct. There's no place here for calling people "trolls".
Unlike my opponent, I will now offer my own original arguments.
A national gun registry would be beneficial in this way: It would allow law enforcement to trace weapons used in a crime much easier. Also, gun owners would be less likely to commit a crime if they knew their gun was registered to them in a national database.
