Extended argument and supporting evidence

  • Various sources argue that a gun needs to have a particular legitimate, and socially accepted purpose in order for its purchase and ownership to be justified. Rifles and shotguns are frequently cited as having a legitimate sporting purpose. Some argue, however, that machine guns diverge from these legitimate ends, particularly because they have a destructive capacity that is well suited for criminal assaults. As such, it is argued that they should be banned. The same is often argued for hand-guns.[1]
