"Because they kill people and criminals get their hands on the them and shoot up schools blah blah blah..."

I'm going to stop my opponent before he/she even starts.

1. Criminals aren't going to obey gun laws.
2. Crime goes down across the board in conceal carry zones.
3. According to the CDC and FBI, anywhere from 10x to 221x the amount of lives are saved with guns when compared to the amount of lives taken.
4. A crime committed by a criminal should not be an excuse to take them from law-abiding people.
5. Even if you got rid of guns, criminals will find other ways to kill.
6. In London they banned guns and knife crime and overall crime rose.
7. During this London ban, gun crime dropped, and rose back to where it was: on track to further exponential growth.
