Second attempt at this. My position is above and open up some lines of arguments to elaborate in the second round like:

1)Guns are not harmful
2)Taking guns away from good people is not smart
3)Get rid of gun-free zones
4)We need:
Shooting Test
Written Test
Reason for Purchase
Mental Health Screening


"Guns are not harmful"

Guns are in fact harmful as they are the cause of many deaths. "According to the research, 39, 773 people were fatally shot in 2017, A figure that has grown by more than 10, 000 people since 1999. "
(http://time. Com/5479993/gun-deaths-us-cdc/)

If almost 40, 000 deaths in one year lead to guns isn't harmful to you, What is?

If you want my full opinion, It is that gun use for hunting shouldn't be banned but any other use should be banned.
Debate Round No. 1


Guns are not harmful because People kill People. Are cars harmful? No, Well guess what. Cars are more dangerous than guns BY A MILE. Everything can cause death. Guns are used by good people(70 million of them)to protect themselves against crime and tyrannical governments.

Let's take a look at countries and people where they took guns away from good people.
Britain-Doubled the crime rate in the first 6 years and continues to see an increase in violent crime. In-home burglaries which is more dangerous than out of home burglaries make up 60% of their burglaries are in-home compared to just 13% for the U. S
Hitler-Taking guns away was the first step to brainwashing his people
Mexico-HIGHEST crime rate in world
Mao and Stalin-Both dictators who suppressed their people by banning guns and fulfilling their evil plans.

Gun free zones make up 96% of mass shootings. 2 mass shootings has been stopped because of a good guy with a gun. Get rid of gun-free zones and many problems go away.
Guns do not deter suicide because Japan, South Korea and Lithuania are all places where they have some of the lowest gun ownership in the world and some of the HIGHEST suicide rate.

Mass shootings could have been prevented without banning guns. In Parkland browsing through his search history, It doesn't take a genius to realize that he wanted to commit that awful act. In Sandy Hook, The mother called the Police on the son 36 times and in both cases were on a FBI watchlist.

So in conclusion-More guns=less crime and no tyrannical government

Two questions for you

If guns existed before, Why are we seeing mass shootings only now?

What is your solution to disarming more than 320 MILLION GUNS in the U. S?

You know, Now that I look back at this, I do agree with Dr. Franklin on this now. Over the past year, Most of my ideas have changed and I do agree that guns are not harmful.

@billsands Im willing to have a discussion bout regulating weapons.
Posted by billsands 3 years ago
guns SHOULD NOT be banned, However they need to be regulated more strictly like say Canada the UK or Australia, And at no time should guns be toted in public. . Thats insane

Con, The problem here is that any gun that you can shoot a deer with can be used to kill a human. Moreover, Since shooting people is illegal already, Illegalizing guns won't stop criminals from using them, Especially in organized gangs in cities like LA and Chicago.
