I believe in the basic right to self-defense. Present your arguments in round one.

It's good to be pro-gun. I feel like some weapons, Every citizen should have.
But, That's too an extent.

I feel like handguns and some shotguns should only be legal for normal citizens to carry/own. This doesn't include hunting rifles, Which should only be attained after attending many classes on guns and gun safety.

Automatic rifles, SMGs, Those sort of things, Just shouldn't even exist. They don't serve any purpose. You don't need an AK-47 to defend yourself from a home invader.

Although, If someone owns a legally shooting range, I feel like it'd be O. K for those really lethal guns to be used. Because in all honesty, They're fun to shoot.

So I get you get what I'm saying. I think the majority of weapons should be banned, While the other half remains legal.

"Automatic rifles, SMGs, Those sort of things, Just shouldn't even exist. They don't serve any purpose. You don't need an AK-47 to defend yourself from a home invader. "

Automatic rifles have been banned since 1930. No questions asked here, Except an AK-47 is not an automatic, But semi-automatic, Like any other gun. Why shouldn't an AK be legal?

UPDATE: Although I can't verify my email-address, I now can post arguments, But can not comment on anything.
ASTA IS IN TROUBLE AS WELL. HE CAN'T LOG INTO HIS ACCOUNT BECAUSE DDO WON'T LET HIM. LOOK AT MY PROFILE INFO, AND CONTACT ME VIA PHONE OR EMAIL, SO WE CAN GET ASTA BACK IN HERE.

Your rebuttal was quite bad.

The only thing you asked me was why should the AK-47 be banned.

It should be banned because it serves no purpose among the normal civilian. It'll be used more for bad then good. Most self defenses are done with knives/handguns. Not an AK-47, Which is extremely lethal if in the wrong hands.

"The only thing you asked me was why should the AK-47 be banned. "

. . . Because that's the only thing i disagreed with

Do you have statistics on how many murders are done with ak-47's? Because according to my source, Less than 300 gun murders per year are done with ANY type of rifle. Why would we bn them when they don't do harm? People can choose to hunt with them, Home-defense, And most importantly to protect against a tyrannical government. I don't know about you, But I would we toast trying to shoot authorities with a gosh darn pistol.

The issue arose when another person on this site argued that guns should not be allowed for any reason including self defense unless you are law officer.

Right, This is so ridiculous. I think you have a misconception about what liberals are really like.

So your stance is to have the right for self-defense?
Basically no one would dispute you for that.

yeah getting stabbed prob feels worse getting shot. (I unno, Didn't happen to me)
but shooting is easier to bring permanent damage or death to more people comparing to a knife holder.
After all, It's easier to attack with guns than defend.

and like armoredcat, I wouldn't argue for the gun ban but for a gun control

I won't argue for a gun ban but I will argue for gun control if you change the perameters for the debate.

Kids have the right to defend themselves, Fanboy. You should think more critically.

Getting stabbed is worse than being shot for the most part, It is harder to keep pressure and to repair the damage.

What do you know about self defense if you are a kid? You can't even own a gun.

Oh wait that's right sorry I forgot you are posing as a 15 year old but in reality you are a middle aged pedophile who wants to debate gun control since it directly affects you, But it wouldn't for a 15 year old kid

Nice try perv BUSTED!

Eh, Everyone having gun vs Everyone having knifes.
The knife situation is more possible for self-defense.
