Would anybody support the permit system for getting permission from government to have sex or children or even breathing?

I was wondering does anyone have any hard evidence (court cases, reputable statements, proper research studies) that can support the pro of gun control and does anyone know where i can find this stuff?
First you need to determine the answer to C3's question. Are you talking about a strict no guns policy or allowing guns but controlling quantities, ammunition, etc.

My suggestion for the best route would be to address the safety issue, research accidental shootings and unintended deaths due to misuse of guns by otherwise law abiding citizens. Another argument you could try to make is that gun control is an all or none issue, take the stance that anti gun control means a literal 2A interpretation. This means that anyone of any age or any criminal background or any legal status has the right to bear any arms, nuclear weapons are not limited under a literal interpretation. You get out of jail for murder and you are immediately allowed to buy a fully auto weapon, you could even argue that the government would have no right to control the arms ownership of prisoners. Get the other side to admit any of these and you should win the debate(if only on technicalities) depending on the exact wording of the debate topic.

I'm not saying they are great arguments but they are the best I can think of and your not going to find many anti gun opinions on this board, were all a bit biased on that issue.

Everybody knows guns are inherently dangerous in the hands of the common jackwagon so let's just get rid of them. While we are about searching everyones home, office, barn and outhouse for the weapons we know will be hidden, lets insure they have no knives or scissors with sharp points. Let's confiscate all the ball bats, golf clubs, rolling pins, shovels, pitch forks, and anything else that someone might, in our estimation, use to inflict bodily injury on another human being.

Let's also require that during every waking moment, each individual shall wear big fluffy pillow looking things on their hands, head and feet to keep them from attacking each other with their bodies.

This is a moral discipline issue, not a weapons issue. If people reach the level of desperation where they are willing to take another's life, they will attempt to do it, regardless of whether they have access to weapons or not.

Work on changing that atttitude and creating a belief in the sanctity of life and you will see better results.

The CDC has the stats on deaths in the USA. See;

Broker Version 8.1 (Build 1366)

I could spend some time perusing the data, but motor vehicle accidents kill far more people than guns.

Does gun control work? Yes it does work to protect the oppressors from the populace. Just ask Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. It worked very well to enable them to gain and maintain power over their people and systematically eliminate hundreds of millions of people from the earth.

The Second Amendment is quite clear and succinct.

basicly you are going to have to use the typical argument of the ignorant leftists... "guns are bad mmkay?" and "when britain destroyed all of those guns gun crimes went down" ... indeed they did.. crime didnt go down but gun crime did because there were alot less guns... leave that second part out though.
