Gun control is a big problem everywhere in the United States. From anywhere to police shootings to murders. In my opinion no one should have guns. There is no use for them. Innocent children die everyday from playing with guns. If someone is robbing your house or you are in danger use a taser. The only people that may need guns are the police. But, there should be limits for police men with guns.

I am very intersted to see whether people support or oppose this idea. Please, comment your opinion on this issue.

Gun control isn't the answer. My contender may say that no one should be allowed to carry guns (minus the police), but he/she missed the bigger picture: In allowing no one to have guns, more innocent children will die. How is this so? Because guns are how people protect the innocent children, and with gun control in effect, they will have no means of protection. Criminals do not buy guns legally, and they will get their guns, no matter what the law says.

In answering the prompt, more innocent people should be allowed to use guns, because they combat these types of people: the professional killers, the shooters, and the terrorists. You will never solve the problem by taking away guns from those who need them most.

My contender is saying that that by not allowing anyone to have guns more children will die because they won't have protection. But, it is a proven fact that children are more likely to die playing with a gun then getting shot. Also, there are different weapons that are not as dangerous that one can use for protection. Guns are also rarely used for self-defence, out of 29,618,300 crimes committed in 2007 only 235,000 threatened or used fire arms. Also, gun control will reduce death because it will be very hard to find guns. America needs gun control laws to thrive.

Dude, in a debate you are supposed to choose one side or the other. You have Con, so I would assume you are arguing against gun control. However, nothing you have said suggests this. Use the opinion part of the site if you are curious about what people think, not the debate part.
