I believe that we should not ban assault rifles and we should not ban any type of gun (s). The shootings that have taken place in these past years are terrible events. However i do not think banning assault weapons or making it harder for a law abiding citizen to own a gun will solve anything. In fact i think if they ban assault weapons it will not do anything. we banned assault weapons from 1994-2004 and guess what? That ban did not do anything at all. Gun control will not do anything but make law abiding citizens less safe. In the L.A street riots in the 90's korean merchants defended themselves and their stores. Unarmed people just up the same street were badly injured or killed. funny how that works

They should be banned because idiots can't aim and while they want to kill your mother might end up kiling you. This causes clever people to end up being shot instead of eradicating the human race of idiots like your mother.

first off that comment just shows how uneducated you are on the topic of guns. And "idiots" usually do not own guns. "Idiots" probably go on debate websites and screw around talking about my mom. Most of the people who have guns are law abiding citizens and for you to even bring up the topic of murder once again shows that you know nothing about the topic of guns. Criminals use guns that they buy on the black market or guns that they steal. Coming back to your comment about "idiots", "idiots" do not cause crimes mental people shoot innocent people like what we have seen in these past years. If we take away assault weapons mental people can buy the same gun on the black market or for that matter use a hunting rife and lay down the same amount of led as they could with an assault rifle. You will be disarming law abiding citizens if we take away assault rifles.

No. To allow guns allows geniuses and pornstars to be killed :(

Both are too precious to lose for humanity.

Most of the people that are killed by guns are people in gangs (killed by other gang members) or innocent people killed by mental people who should not be allowed to have guns. Most or all of the people who are killed by guns are not pornstars or geniuses.

So you are saying gangsters and innocents are worth dying for the sake of a law?

Okay sir clearly i do not want innocent people/ criminals to die because of the right that we have to bare arms, but that is not our problem, i will tell you what is. OUr problem is that criminals CAN GET guns on the black market or can steal them from people that have registered guns. The only people that kill innocents are crazies and criminals both can easily get a gun illegally. Banning guns is not restricting criminals/ crazies from getting guns but its restricting the law abiding citizen who may need to protect themselves or their family from THESE criminals/ crazies who can get guns illegally.

Con, first of all, the reason that there is a black market is that a "legal" gun market allows it and supplies it. So, the sooner we eliminate that legal gun market, the safer we all will be.
Sick individuals are not the only ones misusing guns and causing homicides, regular gun owner unnecessarily kill people, too, in situations where shootings are not justifiable. "La abiding citizens" become crazy all of a sudden causing them to inappropriately use their guns.

Your madness and hunger for guns does not outweigh the peace we should provide for children and all citizens. You need to satiate that hunger with a different hobby, not with one that causes harm.

The government has the right to dictate what kind of weapons you can own so that you will not infringe someone else's right and freedom.
