Outlining a Satirical Argument
First off, before we get any further into this argument and things are stated, I must make it very clear – I’m a 100% against trying to put any type of force against our right by the Constitution to bear arms. The biggest question I have that pertains to this subject is always “Do people seriously think gun control is going to make any type of positive affect on this country?” I mean, seriously, think about it.

If they want a gun that bad, they will find other ways to obtain the firearm. Whether it’s through a private dealer, a family member, or just flat out stealing it from someone else, they’ll do what they want to do. Criminals don’t follow law. It’s illegal to murder people, use weapons for mass...
