Banning guns creates more crime. Look at Britain.

Can I see the evidence you're looking at?

If no one in a country has a gun, How can people feel threatened by gun crime? It makes criminals less powerful and therefore there is less fear. I only hear about gun shootings in America, I don't hear it anywhere else. I don't know how Orlando or any of the mass shootings in America haven't been enough to show that having guns just makes it easier to hurt.
Homicide is the leading cause of death for young people in America.

You are forgetting that criminals find a way. They can buy the gun illegally. Or use other weapons.

I hear many shootings elsewhere.
Orlando is a case of Muslim control not gun control.

I agree with Con. Besides the fact most of America, Including myself, Would kill someone before they took away our guns, Let"s look at France and when terriost attacks happen. What do they do? Run around and get shot. Why? Ohh right, They don"t have guns. I strongly believe it is our second amendment right to bear arms, And no one is taking that away from me.

I'd love to have this debate, But I'm not on either side, I believe balanced gun control is the best option.
That aside, I do have one thing to say: the very first and only argument presented by the instigator has only one anecdotal piece of evidence to support its argument. I highly doubt that such arguments will yield any results.

I see this hoping to see some idiot saying they want to ban guns, But then I see that you are already against it. So sad.
