I believe we should how else would someone protect themselves.
STALIN

Con

Is having guns the only way to protect yourself? And what exactly would you be protecting yourself from? If nobody had guns then nobody could shoot others since nobody would have guns.

Only the police and military should have access to guns, normal citizens should not. Is everybody in this world had a gun then it would do more harm than good.

look my dad was in law enforcement there in no such thing as normal people I personal don't want to be living alone and someone break in and me not have a gun to stop someone and only someone who knows nothing about guns would thing just anyone can have them its a long process to be able to have a gun and if you have one that is illegal you should get arrested but its not the guns that kill people its the people that kill people even if you take away the gun people will still kill people crime will still be there.

Reasons for voting decision: This was just like the last debate I voted on. Pro had better conduct because Con forfeited the last two rounds, but Con had better grammar. Con got off to a good start, and I have a feeling that he would have won the debate, but then he forfeited the two rounds, so now we'll never know, and Pro doesn't have very good arguments. Neither used sources.
