universal background checks are a common sense solution to gun violence
people like to say criminals don't obey the gun laws so why have them. they don't obey drug law, theft laws, murder laws, or any laws... does that mean we shouldn't have those laws? the fact is, some people will not run and get a gun if they have dont have one because they are denied. if they dont have a gun when they might otherwise commit a crime, a crime has been prevented.
people who might challenge me... do you seriously contend that one hundred percent of people who are denied a gun and might commit a crime will run out and get one? those kinds of absolute statements are notoriously known for being false. so what gives?
Unfortunately, universal background checks on gun violence do not all cover the entire gun problem. Often, criminals will find loopholes round this system. Criminals can steal guns from legitimate gun owners, buy weapons illegally from criminal dealers (they exist) or in some cases, illegally import them. UBC's will not entirely solve gun violence.
Suggesting is different from asserting it or actually saying it.
UBC's do work until as I said, criminals often steal guns and or import them. Your missing the point about people using fradulent identities as well. Also, what crimes would you suggest would prohibit someone from using firearms or purchasing one? Almost 88 out of 100 people in the USA own a gun, couldn't they simply just borrow one from a friend or relative? UBC's have many loopholes through them. What about bribing gun store owners (I don't think that would be this difficult unless they are a professional brand retailer) and what about underground illegal gun stores? The majority of guns used in crimes are stolen. Over 93% of guns used in crimes are obtained illegally. So 93% of these crimes wouldn't be prevented. Universal Background Checks wouldn't solve this issue at all.

well to be clear, he is actually contradicting himself.
"UBC's do work until as I said, criminals often steal guns and or import them. "
"Universal Background Checks wouldn't solve this issue at all."
You've repeated yourself on the last argument with the second last argument.
If your last argument is just quoting me contradicting myself, it is a very poor argument. Throughout this debate, you haven't posted specific arguments or countering/rebutting my arguments at all and have said the same thing three times: "i never said it would solve the gun problem. the only point is that it would help. even con seems to suggest in his words that some help will occur, just not all of it. he misses the point." This is a futile argument and clearly doesn't address your argument at all and therefore I find that your arguments have missed the point and have not made a clear view and point of your original argument. As you haven't posted a suitable rebuttle I can't argue with you no longer as there is no way I can rebut. This debate overall has frankly, been pointless as I have seen no arguments except the introduction argument made against me.
Please, instead of posting the same thing three times, post an actual argument.
