• There is a reason America has the most gun related deaths in the world.

    "If guns made people safer America would be one of the safest places in the world. It's not. It is the opposite."

    Guns do not "build a community", they do the opposite, they cause the deaths of everyone in your community. By having a gun in your house there is a higher probability of being killed because your 3 year old son accidentally picked up the gun than you actually using the gun to protect your family.

  • Guns are bad

    With guns people are killing kids in school and scaring them so much. Innocent people all over the world are dying for no reason. Having no guns is the solution to not have as many deaths. The military and police are the only people that should own a gun, to make the world a safer place.

  • Guns are killing thousands of kids.

    Kids all over the world are feeling so unsafe to go to school because of all of the school shootings that have been happening. Like someone said on the no side guns don't humans, humans are killing humans. But the problem is the guns are helping humans kill people, and without guns not as many people would be dying in school and all around the world. I am not saying that we should eliminate all guns that would never be able to happen. But what I am saying is that we should eliminate all automatic guns. No human on this earth needs to own a gun that kill multiple kids in one minute.

  • Guns are bad

    Guns are bad for society because they are rarely ever used for self defense. Most people say they have a gun for self defense. Most people with guns just create more crime and violence. This is proven. America is not any safer just because people have guns. That is for the police, but police are also killing innocent people with guns. Who can we trust anymore? We need good gun control laws to protect the people of America. Though we have laws for gun control, they are not stopping anyone from commiting crime. Also people can steal a gun from a person who wanted the gun for self defense.

  • American mass shootings:

    If guns where banned in the US, the amount of mass shootings, school shootings and death overall, will drop.
    You don't NEED guns.
    Many people would say they would, for protection, but if nobody had a gun, other than people in the army, then you wouldn't need guns for protection. It is a better option than arming teachers and preparing them to KILL someone.

  • Because they can kill

    Even if they put all this fancy pants safety stuff on it can still kill. My great granddad died because of a gun going of and that still had safety stuff on it. If you want to defend yourself from something bad with no weapon you need to use your mouth, Speak up and prevent crime. Yes maybe there might be a few that want to go out and make a raucous but if we ban guns, Then it will be a lot hard to kill. Also the other day I went to hunting and fishing with my Dad and there were guns just lying out in the open and ammo pellets right next to, Any bozo could just go up to it and shoot everybody in the store. Debate slapped down. P. S Sorry if I'm not good at debating.

  • Guns create anarchy

    The one of the worst mistake this country has ever made was the second amendment. This created homegrown terrorist. American people use their guns as a way to solve all of its problems. Guns in the Us are rarely used for self defense. Owning a gun is a privilege not a right.

  • Loving guns damages society and is unhealthy.

    Guns are weapons, and can't represent a peaceful society. Guns are used to take lives. How can these be good for society? The US's love of guns causes people to avoid preventing their shootings by using gun control. (Won't go in depth about gun control) If a nation has a gun culture, the 'gun' part should be discarded. Guns aren't good.

  • No. Violence is more attributed to human nature and culture.

    All people have the capacity for violence. Whether they use a gun or bomb is not the issue, either way the country loses manpower. Banning guns or heavily regulating guns simply makes it impossible for civilians who don't want to through the necessary channels. And those civilians who would rather be a criminal than not have one and those that are already criminals will find a way to get them as already occurs.

  • Why guns are bad

    Because they are. . . So ya that's what i think but still i don't care what other people think of my "statement because it' s my statement and yours is yours so i say guns are bad for society. Whos with me! Because i'm with me! So who else is with me!

  • Nope, They Aren't

    Guns are not bad for society. They create a sense of unity in a community when they are used in a militia. When they are used in self defense, guns can be used to protect yourself, your family, and your personal belongings. Guns are the protection and the relevant way.

  • Guns are only as good or bad as the one who weilds them.

    Those who hate guns dont hate guns, they hate what the people who use them to commit crime. While yes guns are used by criminals to commit crimes, they are more often used for other purposes. For one thing 80% of guns owners have firearms for self defense. States that have concealed carry often have lower crime rates. This makes sense since criminals feel unsafe when firearms are present. According to most sources, guns prevent between 800,000 to 2,000,000 crimes every year. Guns are also used for recreational purposes such as target shooting and hunting. It is understandable that people want guns banned when examining mass shootings but it is not worth the fight. The black market on firearms would explode and much like the drug war, would result in massive increases in defiance of the laws and more deaths than before.

  • It is really not.

    For the people against guns, ask yourself this:
    1.) Are guns sentient?
    2.) Do they have a will on its own?
    3.) Do they hate humans?
    4.) Can they move on their own?

    If all 4 questions are responded with 'no', then guns aren't the problem. Suicide with a gun take up most of the gun-related deaths in the U.S.A., and saying that guns kill people is quite illogical. And most gun accidents are caused by people doing stupid things, or if the baby found the combination for that gun locker.

  • Guns aint bad bro

    Okay for one thing. Imagine a burglar comes into rape your mom. What do you do? Guns are banned. But this guy has a gun. What do you do? Throw a textbook at him? Nice try. You're dead. Guns are needed, even if they are banned they will still be so easy to find.

  • So Why Weapons?

    So guns are not bad if anything they are good. They reduce crime because criminals know that people are not helpless. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Criminals will always find a way to hurt others, whether with a gun or a hammer. Guns allow civilians to act in defense to criminals.

  • Protect your right

    What should we do about guns or more specifically gun control? Well recently Australians gun control efforts have gained attention as a possible model for The United States to follow. Well, in Australia in 1996 after a lunatic used a semi automatic rifle to murder 34 people in Tasmania, the Australian government banned all semi-automatic rifles as repeating shotguns. Owners of roughly 700,000 registered firearms about a quarter of the countries 3 million total guns were required to turn them in for destruction. As my research shows this model will not work in the U.S simply because the U.S has roughly 325 million guns. This a magnitude more than any other country. Even if the Australian plan were tried and worked to perfection we’d still be left with over 200 million guns including hand guns which account to nearly 80% of gun crime. But gun confiscation has never worked to perfection and sometimes threatens to make things worse. The 2007 International small Arms survey studied 72 countries that attempted to enforce gun confiscation or registration on their citizens, they found massive deficiencies of these laws with only ⅓ of gun owners complying. If Americans defy gun bans at just the average rate that is acquired internationally then we should expect tens of millions of guns to flood into the black market. Chicago for example has some of the strictest gun control laws but yet, it is twice more likely to be shot dead in Chicago than in the Afghanistan war. Guns get banned, criminals will be thrilled, now they have the same illegal guns they already had and we the people are defenseless against them. According to the crime prevention research center “gun free zones” have been the target of more than 98% of all mass shootings. This high percentage is why such designated areas are often referred to as “unprotected and vulnerable”. While mass shootings are a complex issue with more than one action needed to prevent them, it seems unclear why gun control advocates would hold so tight to their ultimately dangerous “gun free zones”. Why is it so routine to protect our politicians, celebrities, and federal currency with guns but not our children? Owning guns is not a privilege it is our god given right to defend ourselves.

  • Guns are not capable of morality or ethics. People are.

    Guns in themselves are not bad for society. Studies conducted by the CDC prove that statistically guns are the best for self defense and lower the chances of crime. Bans on high capacity gun mags and 'assault weapons' like March For Our Lives proposes, are not effective ways of ending gun homicides and crime. Guns are not whats bad for society, crime is. And once the nation tackles this problem from the perspective as such, there will be less illegal guns on the streets and more felons behind bars.

  • Gun control only prevents the good ones from getting guns

    Criminals will get guns no matter what, It’s factually proved. In Russia you can’t buy a gun and they have even more crime then us, This is also the same case with Britain, And various African countries, Sudan as an example. Plus it take police a while to get to a crime seen. For example if you have someone break into your house and your a long ways away from a police station your helpless and you can just hide and hope not to die if you don’t have a gun

  • Guns are not bad

    200, 000 times a year women use a gun to save themselves from sexual abuse. Guns are used 80x for self-defense than for killing other people. In the U. K when they banned guns in 1997, Murders and crime ratings went up by 77%. Guns don't kill people, People kill people.

  • Guns are mostly used in self defence

    Most woman use guns to kill there sexual abusers with guns for self - Defence it has also sown when the UK banned guns the crime rates actually went up instead of the crime rates going down and also without guns we wouldn't be able to hunt for food.
