The only laws that I would permit is age laws and non-rocket laws.
Other than that, the topic is self-explanatory.
Beging your debate first round.

Con

Guns are very dangerous man, have you not seen all these shootings lately? I am in favor of keeping guns, but we must put some restrictions in order to make sure these incidents no long occur.

Pro

These incidents can be prevented by simply putting guns in the people's hands. It has become almost common knowledge that gun laws only affect the citizens and that the criminals pay no attention to them. The best we can do is arm the civilians to ensure that they can defend themselves against criminals as well as scare the criminals into not attacking them.

Con

If you put guns in the hands of the civilians, that will lead to even more shootings. Humans are prone to make mistakes, and who knows they will not make a mistake and shoot someone. Large incidents could lead to many people being shot and the banning of guns. If we just put a limit on guns, it should never resort to this.

Pro

If you take away guns, people will have NO way to protect themselves. The supreme court stated that it is not the police's job to protect you. Therefore it is the people's job to protect themselves.
You never responded to my claim that gun laws only affect the law abiders and not the law breakers. This either means that you agree with me or are not trying very hard on this debate.

3 of 4 of the sources you cited were biased and one source you completely misinterpreted.

Con

We are not banning guns, we are just limmiting guns. People are just to crazy now a days to have no limit on guns. In the past year, their has been more gun related problems than ever before. With the limitation of gun magazines or guns, it will help these lessen.

Violence is violence. The tool which is used cant not be to blame.

Gun laws don't protect anyone. They only pad the pockets of politicians with cash.

Reasons for voting decision: Con ignored Pro's arguments and didn't prove anything. Pro's argument that only criminals will have guns was clearly the strongest. Con's sources were irrelevant and didn't have to do with anything. Both sides argued very poorly though.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro was leaping to the assumption that if you put a restriction on guns, it means taking them away. Completely illogical. Overall not a good debate really...
