Should we state guns people are allowed to have, instead of stating guns they are not allowed to have to ensure control works?

  • This will be based off the consitution

    There were laws in englend that said you can't do this and you can't do that but problem with that is you can't list everything someone can do so easy to go around it. So America made the constituation stating what you can do instead of what you can't do which ended up being more effective. Guns have the same problem we try to regulate and say you can't have this but it's not specified so gun companies can go around it and sale the guns anyway. By saying what guns companies can have this problem will greatly lesson especuly with assault weapons.

  • The government shouldn't regulate it in the first place.

    First of all I would like to state that the second amendment says "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed," not, "the right to bear arms shall not be infringed... Unless the federal government says so." The second amendment is our safeguard against the federal government, letting them tell us what guns we are allowed to own is like letting a modern criminal gang decide what guns we can own.

  • Where is your support that this would work?

    There are already too many laws that are poorly enforced telling us which guns we can and cannot own. Please, research the topic before posting. The laws already outline which firearms can be legally owned and which cannot. So basically by stating you cannot own x types of firearms you are saying you can own y types of firearms; in short the laws are already doing both; telling us which we can own and which we cannot. From what I gather; your poorly thought out argument is that we should limit what firearms can be made; then certain types would no longer be available... My response is the same- it is arbitrary, by saying you can make only these firearms you are in fact saying you can't make these other firearms. Also, how would this work with the millions of firearms already in circulation? If you are basing your argument off of the constitution where does the second amendment fit in? Also, spell-check and proofread....
