Semi-Automatic and Automatic Weapons are banned
This does include pistols. A semi-automatic weapon is when the user pulls the trigger once one bullet is fired from the gun. What fits into this category: Bolt-action snipers, Hunting rifles and semi-automatic pistols. Pistols can also be automatic. An automatic is a weapon that if you hold the trigger down is capable of firing continuosly. One example of an automatic pistol is the Glock 18.

My first argument is that mass shootings happen 98. 4 percent in gun free zones. Meaning the title is misleading. Gun free zones means zone without guns. How could a mass shooting happen without guns? Therefore gun control does not work in gun free zones.

If we cannot agree on definitions then we would be talking past each other. I have given my argument and hopefully we agree on what I said about weapons then I can make more arguments in Round 2.

May we learn something new

I understand where you're coming from. But where did these guns come from? The people that shot in the places used semi and automatic weapons. (most of the time). I am going to assume that those guns should be banned as well. I may not be a gun expert, But I do know that something needs to be done about these murderous weapons.

People made them.

There are only two types of weapons. Semi automatic and automatic. There is no third.

I am going to assume that those guns should be banned as well.
So all guns then because most pistols are semi automatic and some are automatic. No third type of gun.

I may not be a gun expert, But I do know that something needs to be done about these murderous weapons

We should do something about Putin but do we? Reality is the ends do not justify the means. Yes you can say if we took all weapons off of people there would be less gun deaths but think about how many people who have guns do not murder. By your logic we should take peoples knives because something needs to be done about these murderous weapons. You might in reality think that won't happen but I beg to differ. United Kingdom took away guns (not all most) and now they are trying to take away sharp objects. This can be reasonable (as reasonable as this is) knifes and unreasonable as potato peelers.
