I will debate with this perimeter, Every American citizen but those who have committed a violent crime should have gun rights.

I will open with this simple statement, and a short quote.
Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson

I would like to wish my opponent good luck, for he will need it.
And i will ask the voters to please vote fairly, rather that be against me or not.

I am not saying guns should be taken away from everybody, The second amendment was made at a time where guns couldn't shoot 500 rounds a minute they were made when their were hunting rifle that were you used for war and food nothing else.
