Guns should be legal to the general public because banning them would just be annoying to citizens. A criminal will find a way to get a gun if they really want one. You can look at many drugs: Are they illegal, yes, but people still find a way to get their hands on them. In Hurricane Katrina, after about 72 hours, the law kind of fell apart, and to protect yourself and your family, you had to have a firearm People want to know they have some protection during an important event. While I can see why people would say that shootings in colleges and other places wouldn't have happened without guns, this wouldn't be the case. Most of the shootings would've happened anyway, like the shootings in Paris recently. Also, the Paris shooting may not have been as bad if the people there were allowed to carry guns. Instead, it was just mostly the police versus the terrorists. For the most part the criminals would smuggle guns in from other countries. Guns should be used intelligently.



I do not endorse this, but it is late at night and there is only one debate round.
