Unenforced "Gun Free Zones" Should be abolished
Debate Rounds (3)
Requiring a place where people cannot protect themselves and cannot be guaranteed protection by the government or group imposing the "Gun free zone" in that area is against the second amendment, borders on criminal negligence when people get shot up in those zones and is completely illogical. It enables these school shootings to happen more often and to a more sever degree.
I look forward to debating any opposing viewpoint to this.
That being said, Argument Commencing:
The constitution guarantees simply that "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed." Telling responsible students and staff they cannot bear arms to protect themselves in crazy items such as ours obviously infringes on this right to bear arms.
"I say I don't want the federal government doing anything except loosely defend the constitutional right to bear arms." -Con
If the gov wants to defend the right to bear arms, they must by definition of this abolish gun free zones and allow people to bear arms
The ONLY policy that would have prevented or diminished the amount of deaths in the last few schools shootings would be to have had an armed guard on premise, or to have teachers with access to a gun in an emergency.
Making a "killing zone" or "Area where you are forced into being unprotected" or the liberal term of "gun free zone" Is unconstitutional as it infringes on the right to bear arms, is an injustice to our nations children we are trying to protect and borders on criminal negligence when those places get shot up and a gun to respond to the situation is no where nearby. It's like saying "this is a fire extinguisher free zone!"
We defend our president, with guns, We defend our congressmen with guns, we defend our governors with guns, we defend our celebrities, with guns, we defend our sporting events, with guns, we defend our jewelry stores, with guns, we defend our banks, with guns, we defend our office buildings, with guns, we defend our factories, with guns, we defend our courts, with guns...........We defend our children with a sign that reads "THIS IS A GUN FREE ZONE"...and then call someone with a gun in an emergency
We have fire extinguishers on hand not to replace fire department but for rapid response
We have defib units on hand not to replace paramedics but for rapid response
And its about time we have armed guards or principals/teachers trained in firearms with access to them not to replace the police, but for rapid response
retrovision forfeited this round.
