Gun control, tighten the laws or loosen the laws

Side Score: 24

Gun control must be implemented to curtail this shameful gun violence in our country.

Side: Tighten

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a startling revelation for 2015. It is projected that deaths from guns will surpass deaths from car fatalities in 2015. An estimated 33,000 Americans will lose their lives from guns as opposed to an estimated 32,000 Americans who will die in car accidents.

The gun violence in America is an American Shame!

Well, that machine gun shit can go. No ordinary citizen needs one.

Ordinary citizens do not carry machine guns. You need a special license in order to own one.

You need a license to own any gun, don't you?

When I say ordinary, I mean non-police and military.

You know I am pretty sure his point is that ordinary citizens can own machine guns if they get the permits.

Having special permits doesn't exactly make a citizen more than ordinary.

Why not? Citizens should be allowed to own something more than a little pistol.

They can still own something more... just a machine gun or an assault rifle seems unnecessary.

Tighten it. With the Newtown shoot out and other school shootings ie( at high school and colleges) it should be tightened. You only get access to guns if the laws are that lenient. America as country has very low crime rate than other countries so what is the need for its citizens to carry guns? If your in Iraq or Syria then you most certainly need a gun for self defense against ISIS.

None of the US shootings were with machine guns, guys. They were with semi automatic weapons. We don't need another gun law.

Are you fucking crazy?, semi auto, machines whats the fucking difference, 1 bullet a second is more then enough do mass killings, hell I can kill 6 people in 6 seconds with a 6 shooter.

Bottom line it does not matter if the killings where from a machine gun or a musket the bottom line is people are dieing from guns, and I'm going to tell you what, I am willing to bet you do not what to live in a world where guns are law, it might sound good to you republicans but you motherfuckers are the first one to run with you tails between your legs when bullets start flying, I know first hand bro, I live in the inner city with gang bangers and ever day many people die from a guns, you might think its cool to watch TV or some John Wayne film but let me tell you it's no fun.

My views: Yes we should protect the second amendment, but, "NO" should we allow everyone to get there hands on guns. we need to close the loop holes so the ghetto fucks around my area can't get there hands on guns and the sick "Adam Lanzers" in the suburbs cant murder children.

Woah, calm down.

It may surprise you to know that I'm a centrist, and an independent. If you don't believe me, I already posted my full views for review. Guns that can fire an excess of 1000 bullets per minute are just so much more dangerous than 1 per second (which is a small fraction of that amount).

I don't watch television, and I hardly ever watch movies (I hate action movies anyways), I don't even know who John Wayne is, and quite frankly I don't care.

Also, I doubt that you could actually kill 6 people in six seconds with a six shooter. Depending on your aim, you'd be lucky to get 4 even if they were lined up. In a crowd, 2ish.

I'd like to see where exactly you found out that GOPer's are the first to run. I am not one, but statistically I would guess the opposite.

Yeah you got and why should ordinary Americans own a semiautomatic for self defense?All these allowances for guns being used for self defense only increases gun violence.
