Since you mostly made an ad hominem argument I feel pretty justified in dismissing anything you have to say on the subject. Not even understanding basic logical fallacies in a debate format is pretty poor form. The ad hominem fallacy in particular is probably the most indicative of a complete lack of knowledge on the subject since it seeks to negate the subject all together and rather than attacking the arguments at hand, you attack a fictitious caricature of what you believe the opponent to be.
This is clearly demonstrated by the only real argument you were able to muster. The homicide rate in the UK went up after the gun ban for the first 5 years. Science about 2005 however, those numbers have stabilized. It should also be noted that while the homicide rate per capita has stabilized and doesn't reflect a real decrease, the rate in gun related homicides has dropped dramatically. It should also be noted that mass shootings are nearly unheard off.
Secondly, the UK is a poor analogy to use since a gun ban is rarely advocated for by the liberally minded. Rather, most are arguing for gun regulations, very different from a ban. For a better analogy you should look to Australia rather than the UK.
Liberals dont give a flying f*** about the children they only care about the rich white ones. Gun control won't do shit. Look what happend in the UK, there crime rose. Criminals break laws. They will find a way to get illegal guns just like they do with illegal drugs. Less than a percent of gun crime here in the U.S. is commited with legal guns. Liberals dont understand this because there so ignorant.
We have a solution of children dieing. You guys don't like it and won't entertain the plan yet still accuse us of doing nothing.
Nope. they're conspiracy loving, right wing jerks. they don't care how many children die, as long as they can have military grade weapons to fight off imaginary enemies.
That's not what the actual data suggests, but I have a feeling that doesn't matter much in this argument?
