Well, right now you don't have much defence so I cant say much.

Right now, its our constitutional right to own fire arms.

Can't say much when u don't have a defence so, your turn.

Well the increasing gun crimes in America are caused by the fact that guns are sold to citizens.
What I mean is that America should forbid the selling of firearms to citizens.

Sry for my bad english if i made any errors :P

Yes, there are a lot of crimes in America, but not all of them involve guns.

Guns are used as protection and recreational fun. I personaly go shooting on a private range every month and it's a lot of fun. They do now require a background check and some states are requiring a licence to buy one. So right now they shouldn't stop selling firearms becuase only a minority actualy buy them from stores. They usualy go to an amrs dealer so they can remain underground and not be picked up by the cops. There is no way to stop this, there will always be secret arms dealers everywhere so it dosnt make since to stop the sell of guns to the majoirty of the population.

Your turn.

What you do with guns doesn't matter to me.
Its dangerous and lethal and America is just selling it.

"Guns are used as protection"

You need a gun for protection if someone breaks in.
But isn't it better if the guns aren't sold so both don't have a firearm?

"They do now require a background check and some states are requiring a licence to buy one. So right now they shouldn't stop selling firearms becuase only a minority actualy buy them from stores."

Lets say, you wan't to rob a store, but you don't have a gun.
But, its america so you can just buy one at the shop.
Or you can just lie to someone so you can rent a gun.
But if the person has been caught once already, he could just ask a friend for a gun. (this most likely happens if the friend agrees or join with the theft)

"They usuly go to an amrs dealer so they can remain underground and not be picked up by the cops."

I ask you this, where did the guns came from?

"There is no way to stop this, there will always be secret arms dealers everywhere so it dosnt make since to stop the sell of guns to the majoirty of the population."

How will you not be able to stop this? The congress for example, could just forbid the use of guns and have them all hand in the guns, solving the problem. The less guns that are in america, the less gun crimes occurs and the harder it gets to get your hands on a gun.
Also, an arm dealer will never remain hidden.They always has to flee from the cops and most of the arms dealer are even caught.

Lets first say this, Guns do not kill people, People kill people.

So the reason you are posting this is that your saying that guns are used in crime and to kill. So next thing they should do is ban knives, forks, pencils, pens, because all of those can be heals against someone to either kill or injure someone severely.

"I ask you this, where did the guns came from?"

The guns come from out of country sources, I don't know how much you know about this type of things but any gun can be traced back to its original buyer and they catch him, then get him to tell them where there guy is. Just like drugs they don't buy them from stores they get them for out of country sources.

Lets just restate, guns don't kill people, the person having the gun kills the person. Guns aren't dangerous at all if used properly.

Also, guns are used as self defence across the nation.

I'm ending my discussion by saying guns have been around for decades and decades, people are going to kill other people, whether it be shooting, beating, stabbing, drawing, ext. Removing guns WILL NOT stop crime, they will just resort to knives and such. Also, its our constitutional right. I believe I have won but it is up to the voters.
