The debate will go on for however long the existence of guns are intact. The fact of the matter is that criminals do not and will never observe the laws. Regardless of the ceasing of guns or immensely regulated gun laws, there will always be a way to obtain one. So maybe owning a gun is good for the public so that one can defend oneself against criminals, or the absence of guns will reduce gun related crimes, nobody will ever know because things are changing constantly. Of course, society will never go back to swords but it’s one’s choice to keep a gun in the house that your family lives in.
)Oh yea I like guns.”This use of sarcasm immediately grabs the audience’s attention within the first line.
