The hard fact is that America is a huge country with literally hundreds of millions of guns of all varieties.
Making guns illegal would not get rid of all of the guns in America. If every law abiding citizen turned in to the authorities the weapons they own, who then would have guns in America? The Police and the Criminals.
This debate has been about whether or not guns should be made illegal. Much has been said on the other side about the death rate involved with guns. The whole debate however goes much deeper than just guns. In order to eliminate gun ownership in this country it is first necessary to abolish the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. The Freedoms we enjoy in this country are protected by this document which most of us here hold dear and sacred. Gun ownership is a right.
The fact is that most people who own guns don’t kill other people with them. The fact that bad people with guns are dangerous will not change because guns are made illegal.
I would like to thank Lottie for debating with me and also thank all of you who took the time to analyse the responses given on both sides. And thanks to Saruman who gives us all the opportunity to express our ideas and thoughts.
