Hi I am Umar! I firmly believe that the United States of America should ban assault weapons... Life is a precious gift , which should be nurtured and preserved. Assault Weapons are anti-life and PRO-Death. Alone 80 people in America get shot due to these deadly assault weapons. Every Now and then we hear of school shootings and dying children. We live real life, its not a video game. The banning of assault weapons, would put an end to this madness and bring peace and harmony.

I accept this debate to protect the name of the second amendment!

I will defend the right to own assault weapons.

My points will include
  • Why gun control doesn't work
  • Actual statistics proving how citizens aren't completely at fault
  • The constitution says we may own arms

I look forward to this debate.

My opponent as forfeit the last round. I will now post my argument.

  • Umar has said he belives the USA should ban assault weapons and claims it is "anti life". Read this scenario.

  • A house at 00:00 AM is broken into. Person A is armed. Person B is being shot at by Person A. Person B shoots and kills Person A. This scenario is showing "Stand Your Ground" rules. In other words, Person B would NOT be charged with murder, because Person A was going to kill them. Person B used an Assault rifle.

Con

Con hasn't posted any further arguments. Mine continues.

Banning guns has little effect against gun crime. Actually, LESS gun laws are more effective. Florida had abolished gun laws and crime went down.
Would you rob an armed man? I think not.

What is an assault weapon? First answer that. A rock can be an assault weapon.And most of the gun violence in America are in gun free zones lends me to believe they unarmed the wrong people. In places that do not restrict gun ownership, there is very little gun violence.I never walk out my door and think maybe someone will shoot me. For over 60 years I have never had that thought.But that is a prevalent thought in inner city gun free zones. And even in places where genocide takes place, if the people were armed. that would not happen. But waiting for the police or the military gets a lot of people killed.

The police are not the first responders. The victim is.For the most part the police arrive just in time to clean up the mess.The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

If it were not for the second amendment, America would be a nation of subjects, not citizens.Democrats would see to that.

Ok... Cheyyene Bodie good to know that you know that i am a middle eastern... I just have to tell you all one thing- i have been given a debate at school and i have to take good points ! This is the reason I am here with this debate ! Though I am neutral, I support ban of assault weapons more ... The reason why i am sort of neutral is that there are many strong points with the ban too and against the ban too .

Thanx!

This will be interesting. I especially am curious how Pro intends to define the concept of what qualifies as "assault weapons."

Umar" Sounds like you are middle eastern.That would play into the mindset of a lot of folks from your part of the world. Then the only people they would have to contend with are the government here.In the 1940's. The Japanese high command had plans to invade the western United States.They scrapped that plan because they made the statement that if they did invade us, there would be a gun pointing at them from behind every blade of grass.That is the same problem those muslim terrorists have. They have to sneak in here under cover to do their evil deeds.If Germany had the second amendment, Hitler could not have rounded up millions of its citizens so easily and put them in concentration camps.And our government today has that problem. That is what keeps it at bay.
