  • But it's true that guns alone are not the whole problem. We have to fix society.

Retort Deep-Dive[edit | edit source]

  • The chart below shows that, as gun laws become stronger, gun deaths generally decrease.
  • However, it's not that simple-- the same chart shows some states have stronger laws and more deaths than some states with weaker laws.
  • That proves that fixing gun laws is not the whole solution-- we must also fix society. Which may be even more difficult than changing gun laws. Also mean gun-control advocates must recognize that pro-gun advocates have a point. Draft:Is_violence_good_for_the_economy?
